Know Your Lemon Law Rights:

What is a ‘Lemon’ Anyway?

Lemon Law

In the automotive world, “lemon” refers to cars that have repeated problems or defects that substantially impair their use, value or safety. Vehicle lemon laws are designed to protect consumers, and our lemon law lawyers are here to help.

Check Your Local Laws

While the rules differ from state to state, as a general rule, if the vehicle continues to have a defect within the warranty period, even after it has been repaired four or more times, or the vehicle has been out of service for 30 or more days, then the vehicle is labeled a Lemon. Most state laws provide that an automobile manufacturer must either refund a consumer’s money and take back the defective vehicle or replace the vehicle. Keep in mind in most states it is typically the consumer’s choice to elect the relief that best suits them. However, before you make a decision, talk to our experienced lemon law attorneys to ensure you are protected.

Even a Single Defect Can Be a Problem

In some states, even a single defect that may result in a serious injury or cause a safety issue is considered a Lemon. For this reason, our lemon law lawyers encourage you to review the vehicle lemon laws for your state and reach out to one of our lemon law attorneys to discuss your options regarding your lemon vehicle. Note that most lemon law attorneys may not charge any attorneys’ fees from you, but rather fight the case on your behalf and collect their fee from the manufacturer.
