New Assistive Devices Warranty Act - Help for the Disabled

Louisiana has a special set of rules and laws for consumers who buy or lease assistive devices, such as wheelchairs, motorized scooters, hearing aids, talking computers - basically anything used for a major life activity.

If the device is sold or delivered in Louisiana, and proves to be defective (i.e., does not conform to an applicable express warranty) and the consumer reports the nonconformity to the manufacturer, the assistive device lessor, or any of the manufacturer's dealers and makes the assistive device available for repair before one year after first delivery of the device to a consumer, a reasonable attempt to repair the nonconformity shall be made. If the manufacturer or dealer refuses to repair, or doesn't do it within a specified time, or doesn't make a rental device reimbursement available while being repaired, penalties, including twice the amount of the "pecuniary loss" (apparently what's been paid or owed by the consumer), plus cost and attorney's fees can be awarded.
