How Can Lemon Law Attorneys Help

Just like with insurance settlements after a car accident, yes, you are allowed to try to handle lemon law claims yourself. However, insurance companies know that private citizens will often take the first low-ball offer they are given, and it’s the same thing with warranty companies and car manufacturers. When you have an attorney call or write a letter on your behalf, it shows that you mean business.

What Lemon Law Attorneys Do

In addition to protecting you from intimidating automobile legal departments, a lemon law attorney will make sure you get the best possible settlement outcome for your situation. Plus, because lemon law attorneys deal with the same dealerships and manufacturers over and over again, they already know how to prepare and pursue claims. These details can make a huge difference in how soon you can be relieved of your lemon.

An Example of How a Lemon Law Attorney Can Help

Let’s say a car manufacturer convinced you to go to arbitration regarding your claim. Arbitration can help to keep you out of court and have an objective third party help you reach a fair settlement with the dealership or manufacturer. You decide to bring in a lemon law attorney at this point to help with your legal strategy. 

Unfortunately, if you go to court, the car manufacturer is responsible for paying your attorney fees if you win. In arbitration, you are not entitled to have your legal fees covered. There are legal “loopholes” like this everywhere, and you can bet the car manufacturer steered you towards arbitration for good reason—even if they lose, it’s still way cheaper for them. Contact an experienced lemon law attorney to avoid these traps.

Questions to Ask a Lemon Law Attorney

There are plenty of lemon law attorneys to choose from. How do you pick? Here are a few questions that we recommend asking potential lemon law attorneys (because if you have a strong case, they will be standing in line to represent you):

  • Are lemon law and warranty claims your firm’s main area of practice?
  • How long have you been handling lemon law cases?
  • When can I expect you will be finished reviewing my documents?
  • May I see a copy of your representation agreement or client contract?
  • Will you represent me in court if my case does not settle?
  • What is your rate of success with lemon law claims?
  • Will you provide me with your cell phone number if necessary?
  • What is your fee structure in case the car company is not mandated to pay my legal fees? 
  • Are there any other fees I should be aware of (filing fee? legal courier charges? copies?)

Lemon Law Attorney Fees

The law requires that car manufacturers pay for the attorney fees of individuals who bring claims against them and win. This means most lemon law attorneys have no need to ask you for a retainer or send you a bill. By accepting your case, a lemon law attorney is basically telling you that your case is strong, which means Ford or Honda will be paying the bill. This type of attorney fee arrangement is standard for lawsuits.

    "Pleased with the Service"

    Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

    "Beyond Satisfied"

    I am beyond satisfied. After being told that I did not have a case by other attorneys, I was referred to Ms. Campbell and I am so glad I called her. During the initial consultation, Ms. Campbell was very thorough and answered all of my concerns. She assured me that this was not an overnight fix, however, it took less than three (3) months to resolve. Ms. Campbell was available every step of the way. I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless. I would recommend LemonLaw123 to anyone without any reservations. I could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!!!!
