Regardless of the make and model of the vehicle, or if it’s a new or used car, California’s Lemon Law allows a consumer to sue the manufacturer and/or dealership for the recovery of their attorney’s fees and costs. California’s Lemon Law requires the manufacturer to guarantee that a vehicle is in good working order when it is sold. If the vehicle does not perform according to its intended use, the manufacturer is required to repair or replace the vehicle.
Many consumers avoid hiring a lawyer when they encounter problems with their vehicle because they believe that hiring a lawyer will cost a lot of money. That isn’t true. It’s in the best interest of a consumer to communicate with a qualified, experienced Lemon Law attorney like The Lemon Pros to understand what the law requires and to know their legal options.
Can you afford to hire a lawyer? You can't afford NOT to!
One of the first questions that a lemon vehicle owner often has is whether they can afford to hire a lawyer to represent them in their Lemon Law claim. When you hire a lawyer to handle your Lemon Law claim, you do not have to pay any attorney’s fees up front and will not have to give up a large portion of your award.
Getting the help of an experienced Lemon Law attorney like The Lemon Pros can help minimize the time it takes to negotiate a favorable deal with the manufacturer or dealership. Your attorney should submit all of his or her expenses and fees for your case to the manufacturer or dealership for payment. The Lemon Pros offers their services for free, and they do not charge up-front fees.
A Lemon Law claim can arise when a vehicle is sold to a consumer that doesn’t perform in a manner that the vehicle should perform. If this happens, then the vehicle may be considered a lemon under the law. California’s Lemon Law allows you to recover your attorney’s fees and costs in full from the manufacturer. Many qualified and experienced California Lemon Law attorneys can offer to represent you for no money down and no money out of pocket.
This means that if you have a valid California Lemon Law claim, you can hire a lawyer for free because the manufacturer or dealer will pay for their fees. Most jurisdictions (like California), allow consumers to recover the reasonable attorneys fees when they win their case. This provision was added to remove the financial risk from the consumer.
This is important because a consumer does not have to fear expensive legal bills and thus can pursue their Lemon Law claim. Both federal and state laws require the vehicle manufacturer to pay the legal fees and costs of a successful lawsuit. The average cost for a lawyer is around $400 to $600 an hour. This figure is based on the time needed to complete a case, as well as the complexity of the situation.
For a simple lemon law case, you might be able to get up to $500 an hour in attorney fees. However, if your case is complex, you might not be able to get a higher hourly rate. Some more experienced Lemon Law attorneys may also ask for a small portion of the recovery that they get from the settlement. Like many have said, you get what you pay for.
If you are planning on filing a Lemon Law claim, the first thing to do is to speak to a Lemon Law lawyer to find out if there are any issues with your case. Even though it’s usually costly to hire a lawyer, that is not the case for a Lemon Law lawyer. The consumer does not need to pay the attorney’s fees. Trust the services of a skilled attorney to fight for your rights.
