    SD Supercharger Lawsuit

    new to the site, learned too late...Also one of the many victims with blown sc washer / engine failure. Attempted to claim as insurance, but DENIED. Delaer wants $7k to repair. Has anyone tried to put together class action vs. Sea Doo? There are at least a dozen on this site alone. Am thinking about contacting shyster & shyster. Any thoughts???

    First off welcome to the site! You will find way more than just a dozen on here that have had super charger troubles. As far as trying to bring a lawsuit on BPR.... I think you would need deep pockets. REALLY DEEP. They have Attorneys on their payroll to handle all the claims against them.

    Bringing any lawsuit

    against a company based outside the US is so pricey that you can pretty much buy engines for all parties concerned..and that's just for a retainer.

    besides that..your settlement, assuming you did win would be so diluted by legal fees you'd be lucky to recoup a dime on a dollar.

    Most class action suits are of the biggest benefit to the attorneys and you'll need hundreds if not thousands of plaintiffs to qualify as a class, besides that you'd likely need mechanical engineering experts to go against SD claiming it was a design defect and not owner neglect.

    for a fun read, try King Of Torts..John Grisham

    A GREAT book, and so true. Lawyer gets the Gulfstream(at least for a while), and the client gets a few thousand. Hey, but lawyer does get the girl.........

    Sorry to hear of your loss.
    But why would you expect insurance should pay for it?
