Claimant: (Comment):
"I am in Las Vegas Nevada. However this needs to proceed to be proven I'm prepared. I own an Infiniti G35x when I got the car back every brake light kept coming on. They had a rookie, an inexperienced person attempting to work on my car, who got caught blindsided, and couldn't recover. I have suffered every since. Once those lights activated; he stopped. End of story. Except they didn't know how to deactivate the brake lights. Who takes their car in for brake work, gets it back, and every brake light is on? Really Jeremiah, I think his name was. I'm prepared."

Claimant: ("MAYBE"):
"I'm not sure. I have suffered, and lost much as a result of this. I almost lost my life. I was traumatized and humiliated upon learning that my son and I had paid 1500.00 for brakes and rotors only to discover nothing had ever been done. All the parts were old. The mechanic had me sign a waiver because they were refusing to lete leave their shop unless I had the brakes replaced, or signed the waiver."
