What is this about?
Zimmerman Reed is currently investigating two distinct types of claims involving Tesla vehicles:
If you believe you were harmed by either of these two issues, you may retain our law firm to represent you and file a claim seeking compensation.
Driving Range Issues
A recent report by Reuters found that Tesla advertising may have exaggerated how far Tesla vehicles can drive on a single charge, triggering numerous customer complaints. According to the report, Tesla equipped the dashboard of its vehicles to display positive and inaccurate projections about a vehicle’s range when fully charged. Reuters reported on studies finding that Tesla vehicles often failed to achieve their advertised range estimates and the projections provided by the cars’ own equipment.

Full Self-Driving Issues
In July 2022, the California Department of Motor Vehicles accused Tesla of falsely advertising the capabilities of its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving functions. The agency alleged that Tesla misled customers with advertising language on its website describing Autopilot and Full Self-Driving technologies as more capable than they are. Tesla customers are charged $6,000 to $15,000 extra for these premium features. If Tesla did not provide what vehicle owners paid for, Tesla owners may have a claim for financial compensation.

What am I signing up for by filling out the form?
You are signing up to participate in a dispute resolution process through private arbitration. Tesla owner’s sales agreement with Tesla requires that dispute resolution procedures be conducted in individual arbitration proceedings, instead of through a lawsuit filed in a court of law. Arbitration is a way to present disputes outside of court in a private arbitration forum, which means we will not be filing a traditional lawsuit in court. Attorneys at Zimmerman Reed handle the arbitration process on your behalf. While the arbitration process is an individual dispute resolution procedure, if there is an opportunity for a similar resolution to be provided to all claimants who have similar claims, we may try to accomplish that. This is commonly referred to as mass arbitration, which means that we anticipate representing thousands of people with similar claims at the same time.
Will this cost me money?
No, there is no up-front cost to you. Our firm handles claims on a contingency basis which means that we only get paid if we obtain a positive recovery for you via settlement or a final judgment. We also agree to advance the out-of-pocket costs involved in presenting your claim in arbitration. If Zimmerman Reed is not successful in getting you financial compensation, you will owe us nothing.
