Label Trial Team secures Mercedes Benz USA’s Agreement to $10 Million Potential Value Nationwide Class Action Settlement in Sprinter Van Leaky Roof Cases

Mercedes has agreed to settle our class action lawsuit alleging its Sprinter vans’ roof-mounted air conditioners leaked so much water that passengers described it as “raining inside the vehicle.” (Mercedes disputes liability and damages.) Plaintiffs were represented by Anthony Label and Steven Kronenberg of the Veen Firm, and co-counseled with Jonathan Gertler, Mark Chavez, Daniel Gildor, and Samuel Cheadle of Chavez & Gertler, LLP.

Plaintiff filed an unopposed motion for preliminary approval of settlement that, if approved, will extend the warranty on about 10,000 Freightliner and Mercedes Sprinter vans nationwide. Each Sprinter van air conditioner leak repair is estimated to cost between $500-$1,000. According to plaintiff’s counsel Anthony Label, the proposed settlement “is a fair and reasonable resolution of Mercedes Benz USA’s exposure, and a very favorable result for the Sprinter owners’ claims, who will have these defective vehicles repaired free of charge.”
