LG Refrigerators

Girard Sharp served as co-lead counsel representing consumers who bought LG refrigerators prone to stop cooling, resulting in spoiled food and medicine, due to a defective linear compressor part. In 2020, the court approved a settlement that made each class member eligible for several thousand dollars in recovery; those without documentation could recover up to $450. The class members also received a five-year extended warranty covering the full cost of repairs for cooling failures. The settlement provided relief to over a million and a half American consumers.
