On March 5, 2018, Judge James V. Selna of the United States District Court granted a motion for  Final Approval of a class action settlement involving defective Mercedes-Benz seat heaters. Eric Yuhl and Colin Yuhl were approved as class counsel.  It is estimated that the settlement may generate up to $72 million in recovery for affected consumers. The class alleged that approximately 270,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles nationwide have defectively designed seat heaters that may smoke, spark, burn or catch fire while in use. The settlement provides a free repair for any affected vehicle, reimbursement for past repairs up to $1,000 for consumers that already experienced a seat heater failure, and automatic extended warranty coverage for seat heaters. The seat heater repair was specifically created by Mercedes as a direct result of this class action suit. Vehicles covered by the settlement include the M-Class, R-Class, and GL-Class SUV’s for model years 2000 – 2007. 

On October 5, 2015, subcontractor defendant Cross dug up an underground utility during excavation work on behalf of general contractor defendant PMC, breaking open the outer plastic conduit and exposing the interior lines. The Plaintiff, a 64 year-old electrician was asked by Cross to confirm the exposed utility was an abandoned (not live) low voltage communications line. After Plaintiff’s initial wand test was negative for power, he cut into the insulation of one of the lines intending to perform a second verification wire test. The line exploded blowing Plaintiff out of the trench. Even though both the subcontractor and general contractor both testified they believed it was a low voltage communications line, it turned out to be a 12,000 voltage SCE high power line.

Plaintiff received a settlement totaling $3.081 million. Read more about the case here
