Law Lemon Eligibility

The first step in law lemon cases is to determine whether your product constitutes as a "lemon."

The Law Can Vary From State To State

Laws vary from state to state, so you will need to check with lemon law lawyers in your state to see if you are eligible. For instance, some states only cover passenger vehicles, SUVs, vans and trucks. Other states may also cover portions of motor homes and motorcycles.

Additionally, an auto lemon is just one type of product covered in some states, as you may also be entitled to a refund or replacement for devices like motorized scooters, newly purchased puppies who suffer from medical conditions, dysfunctional appliances or defective computers.

Choosing Lemon Law Attorneys

Lemon law attorneys are legally qualified people who are specialized in a particular niche of litigation that protects consumers from fraudulent manufacturers or sellers.

When Are You Entitled To a Full Refund

In a typical lemon law case, a buyer has purchased a "new" vehicle that has been nothing but problems from the get-go. They usually have spent a lot of their valuable time at the mechanic's shop getting repairs done.

After a certain number of attempted repairs, that consumer is then entitled to a full refund or a replacement vehicle. By hiring a lemon law lawyer, the individual can ensure that the best settlement is reached.

Ca Lemon Laws, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act

The California Lemon Law, also known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the Tanner Consumer Protection Act, aims to protect Californian residents from being sold defective products.

Are you Getting Frustrated?

Few things are more aggravating than having to take a product back to the manufacturer or dealer for repair after repair. A car lemon is especially upsetting because it could lead to missed days at work and difficulty navigating day-to-day life. Yet local laws can cover anything from puppies and computers to motorized scooters and computers, in addition to vehicles.

How To Find A Lemon Law Attorney

Despite automated production and robotic precision, not all vehicles come off the assembly line in perfect condition.

Have You Purchased A Lemon 


Even though there are consumer protection laws, not all dealers sell perfect cars. Sometimes consumers unknowingly purchase "lemons," which are cars that suffer from serious nonconformities and life-endangering defects.

If you find yourself in the repair shop constantly for the same problem or a number of problems within the first year or two of buying your "new" car, then you may need a lemon law attorney to help you win compensation.

Lemon Law Lawyer

Often times, consumers try to resolve their car lemon dilemma themselves by calling or writing the manufacturer directly.

Manufacturer's Are Not To Be Trusted

However, time and time again, manufacturers have jerked customers around, claiming that used cars aren't covered by state laws (even though they technically are, within the first 18,000 miles or 18 months). Make sure you check this within you state as it may differ.

In other instances, manufacturers try to quickly pawn off a replacement vehicle, even though consumers have the right to choose either a buyback or a cash refund. For these reasons, it's wise to contact a qualified lemon law lawyer who knows the laws.

Lemon Laws For Consumer Products

Many consumers turn to lawyers for help when they have a product that continuously fails.

You Should Be Protected From Defective Products

Whether it's a new puppy who winds up at the vet immediately after you buy it or a motorized scooter that can't hold a battery charge, you should be protected by state lemon laws for consumers.

Sometimes the law entitles you to a refund or replacement, but doesn't penalize the manufacturer or seller much past that. Hopefully, if enough consumers make their claims, unscrupulous businesses will close up shop and the market will be fair once again.

Paralegal Services For Consumers

Paralegal services are a form of legal help, where an assistant researches federal and local laws, as well as new laws and tax laws pertaining to your case.

They Do All The Behind The Scenes Work

It's the lawyer's job to construct an argument and represent you in the court of law, but it's the paralegal's job to do the behind-the-scenes work and provide attorney advice. If you feel your automobile or your consumer product is a "lemon" or a dud, then you will likely deal with a paralegal most of the time.

State Lemon Laws

State lemon laws vary greatly in their interpretation of the federal laws.

The federal statutes say that "consumers" can be protected by law if they receive a "defective" product that cannot be repaired by a "reasonable number of attempts" by the manufacturer. Now, there are a number of ways to decipher what problems are covered.

How The Lemon Law Works

Many consumers have heard of the lemon law but aren't familiar with how it works.

What Qualifies as a Lemon?

Old cars that have faulty electrical work, broken air conditioners, an annoying rattle or rust do not qualify as "lemons." However, if the brakes, the gears, the starter or the acceleration appear faulty and the manufacturer can't repair the defect, then it might be a lemon car.
