(“GREE USA, INC.”) HAVE AGREED TO PAY RESTITUTION TO INDIVIDUALS AND ENTITIES WHO WERE DIRECTLY AND PROXIMATELY HARMED, EITHER THROUGH PHYSICAL INJURY OR FINANCIAL LOSS, BY A FIRE OR OVERHEATING CAUSED BY ONE OF THEIR DEHUMIDIFIERS THAT WAS MANUFACTURED FROM 2007 THROUGH 2013, SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES, AND SUBJECT TO THE RECALL THAT GREE ZHUHAI ANNOUNCED ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2013, EXPANDED ON JANUARY 30, 2014, AND RE-ANNOUNCED ON NOVEMBER 29, 2016.
If you meet the criteria described above, you may have a valid restitution claim for up to 100% of your losses resulting from an overheating or fire by the qualifying Gree Dehumidifier. The Special Master will evaluate your claim and determine if you are eligible for restitution. If eligible, the Special Master will determine the proper amount of restitution owed to you. You may submit only one claim to the Gree Dehumidifier Restitution Program and, if eligible, will receive only one payment. The Special Master will mark any additional claims submitted as ineligible. All claims must be submitted by February 20, 2024.
You bear the burden of demonstrating to the Special Master your eligibility for restitution and the amount of the claimed loss sustained as a result of the fire or overheating. In determining your eligible restitution payment amount, the Special Master will deduct any compensation that you have already received for your losses through earlier payments from Gree or other sources, including, but not limited to, insurance and civil settlement payments.
