Impact of Williams v. Sharon Woods Collision Center Presented by Attorney David Miller

Columbus Workshop Only

A recent Ohio Appellate Court case, Williams v. Sharon Woods Collision Center, confirmed a $105,000 judgement against an Ohio collision shop.  Moving forward, this judgement will impact the way the collision industry conducts business in the future.  To help ASA Ohio Members understand the impact of this decision on their business, Attorney David Miller of Buechner, Hoffer, Meyers, and Koenig will provide a presentation how to best protect your business against these types of lawsuits. His presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Brief history of the facts of the case and how the jury and Court of Appeals decided it
  • Overview of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and its very punitive triple damages and attorney’s fees award for bad conduct
  • Positive and negative Impacts of Williams to the auto and truck repair industry
