Midea Dehumidifiers Recalled

Expanding litigation to include Midea dehumidifiers

After successfully resolving several Gree dehumidifier files, we are expanding litigation to include dehumidifiers manufactured by Midea. On November 2, 2016, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall notice on dehumidifiers made by Midea.

CPSC issues recall on 3.4 million Midea dehumidifiers

We are resolving these files with the same methodology we used on Gree as both products share similarities. We are working with fire and engineering experts to clearly identify the product defect and determine resolution through direct contact with Midea’s national counsel. If we identify subrogation potential, we can quickly set-up the file and begin pursuit of recovery subject to our current fee structure. Reduced fee options are available for multiple files.
