Having an expert lawyer on your side can make all the difference in a lemon law claim. A lawyer can provide you with much-needed advice and guidance through the process of filing a claim, especially if you don’t understand how lemon laws work or what they require. Most importantly, a good lawyer can guide you through the procedure and make sure all the necessary paperwork is completed correctly, so you get all the benefits the law allows. Here are a few situations in which it’s particularly important to have an experienced lemon law attorney on your side:
1. If the manufacturer denies your claim.
Manufacturers have a lot of incentives to deny your claim and make you go away. They might try to say your car doesn’t qualify for a lemon law claim, or they might try to lowball you on the settlement amount. If the manufacturer denies your claim, a lawyer can challenge the denial and bring the case to court. This is especially important if you suspect fraud or misrepresentation of facts.
2. If the manufacturer won’t cover the defect.
These days, many lemon law laws require the manufacturer to cover all reasonable repair costs, even if the repairs don’t fix the problem. But some manufacturers try to get away with only reimbursing a portion of the repair costs, or they might try to deny coverage altogether. A lawyer can help you get the full reimbursement you’re entitled to under the law.
3. If you’re not sure whether your car is a lemon.
The laws vary from state to state, so it can be difficult to know whether your car qualifies as a lemon. A lawyer can help you understand the laws in your state and determine whether your car is covered. Many lawyers offer free consultations, so it’s easy to get started.
4. If you’re not sure what kind of settlement you’re entitled to.
The lemon law provides several different benefits such as a refund, replacement car, or cash settlement. Manufacturers may also be required to pay your legal fees if you win your case. To get the most out of your lemon law claim, it’s important to understand what you’re entitled to and how the law works.
