If you have been following the news about defective mattresses, you probably know that people who were injured by the fiberglass in the product, as well as those whose home was contaminated by it, are entitled to compensation. However, you may ask yourself whether you can get reimbursement in the absence of damage.

When it comes to Zinus, Ashley, and Nectar mattresses, our attorneys and legal team have been dedicating their endeavors to offering quality assistance to people whose lives were turned upside down by the abundant fiberglass in these products. Our goal is to help as many impoverished families as possible recover financial compensation for their unjust suffering and loss of finances. Nevertheless, although we mostly focus on filing defective product claims on behalf of the families affected by fiberglass exposure and contamination, we can also help you obtain a reimbursement if you own a mattress that has not caused you any harm yet.

How can I obtain reimbursement if I own a defective mattress?

Owning and sleeping on a Zinus, Ashley, or Nectar mattress is usually a disaster waiting to happen, as the fiberglass in it can injure you or contaminate your home even if you do not remove the cover of the product. Therefore, it is natural to wonder if you could get a reimbursement for the mere fact that your mattress is a known defective product that may harm you in the future. You may want to get rid of your mattress just to be on the safe side, which means that you will have to spend money on a new and safe mattress, whose cost can be quite high. Therefore, it would be just to obtain reimbursement from the liable manufacturer first since you found out their product does not align with the safety standards.

According to Zinus, consumers who bought one of their mattresses can return it within 100 days from the date of the purchase. If you want to send back the mattress within this period of time, you will get a full refund, as the company states on their website. Nonetheless, the mattress you want to return needs to meet a series of criteria, which are the following:

  • you must have evidence of purchase
  • the mattress must be intact, without stains or smears
  • you must have all the documents that came with it
  • the accessories that accompanied it must be in your possession

The process of returning a defective Zinus mattress on your own can be daunting and challenging, as there is plenty of bureaucracy involved in the process of reimbursement. For this reason, we encourage you to reach out to our law firm, as we can help you get a reimbursement faster and with minimal participation on your part, whether you own a Zinus, Ashley, or Nectar mattress.

We can help you get your money back from the manufacturer if you have a mattress with fiberglass

If you decide to work with our legal team for the purpose of obtaining reimbursement for your faulty mattress, you should first know that you must meet the same requirements concerning the condition of the mattress and the documents you have. We can get a reimbursement on your behalf by negotiating it in a potential future settlement, but we may be able to obtain reimbursement for you within a shorter period of time by discussing with the company directly, as numerous people complain that the company fails to respond to the concerns of consumers.

To get a clearer idea about the willingness of Zinus to deal with complaints, you should know the following:

  • there are currently 196 BBB complaints filed by product owners, out of which 89 are unanswered or unresolved
  • in the past 3 years, over 80% of Consumer Affairs reviews for Zinus mattresses were 1-star reviews
  • while the most prevalent complaint was the mattresses sagging prematurely, now most people complain about fiberglass

To make matters even more complex, a lot of consumers report that they have a difficult time returning their Zinus mattress in accordance with the 100-night trial, as the company makes the owners responsible for the disposal fee of the product.

Getting back to your right to request a reimbursement, if you decided to dispose of your mattress, no matter its manufacturer, please give our legal team a call, and we will promptly evaluate your case to determine what the most effective course of action is. We cannot tell you for sure how long obtaining a reimbursement will take, so it would be ideal to make sure you have a mattress to sleep on if you cannot afford one between the day the defective one is thrown away and the day you buy a new product. Nonetheless, what we can promise you is that we will do all in our power to get back the money you are entitled to from the company, as it has knowingly manufactured defective mattresses and can thereby be held liable.

File a reimbursement claim with the assistance of our skilled attorneys

Our attorneys specialize in product liability and, in addition to having the necessary competence to obtain compensation for you by filing a claim, they can also get you the reimbursement you deserve from Zinus, Ashley, or Nectar. If you own a defective mattress but have only recently found out about the dangers of the fiberglass in it and now want to return it, we can assist you in this respect by filing a reimbursement claim with the company.

Since we are a law firm, we have more authority than a consumer and thereby considerably more chances of obtaining the money you are entitled to. All you have to do if you want to request reimbursement is to get in touch with our legal team, explain your situation, and provide us with proof that you own a mattress with fiberglass. Eventually, you will receive the money you spent on your faulty mattress so that you can invest them in a new, safe mattress.
