If my case qualifies, what could I receive?
California Lemon Law offers extensive legal recourse if you can prove that your car is a lemon. You are afforded several legal rights if you own or lease a lemon.
You may be entitled to a refund, cash, or a replacement vehicle. Through a lemon law refund, you would be entitled by law to receive full reimbursement for all monies out of pocket associated with your lemon, minus a usage fee for the period in which your vehicle was working properly.
A lemon law refund or lemon law repurchase is the best-case scenario for lemon law settlements. Clients often use the funds they receive through their lemon law claims to purchase a new or alternative car.
You may qualify to receive cash compensation for your lemon. Through this remedy, you would receive cash for the diminished value of your vehicle. This is typically known as a “cash-and-keep” lemon law settlement, in which you keep your vehicle but receive cash compensation from the manufacturer.
This differs from a lemon law refund or lemon law “buyback” in that you do not return the car, nor does the manufacturer repurchase it. If you have leased your car, then you may keep it until the end of your lease contract with a cash and keep settlement.
If you receive a replacement vehicle in a lemon law settlement, the vehicle is replaced with one that is substantially similar to your lemon. This remedy is less common among lemon law settlements as it can be difficult identifying a vehicle that is substantially similar to the one that is a lemon.
You may be more likely to receive a replacement vehicle, however, if your lemon is a motorcycle, ATV, or similar vehicles. It is important to note that in order to receive a lemon law refund, cash, or a replacement car, your case must qualify.
Common Problems in California Lemon Law Claims
A variety of auto problems are covered by state and federal laws. Any defect that affects the safety, use, and or value of your car. Even seemingly “minor” car issues could qualify for lemon law relief. The following list includes some of the most common car problems seen in California lemon law claims:
- Airbag Light On
- Automatic braking system issues
- Abnormal noises
- Blown fuses
- Engine misfire
- Fluid leaks
- Illumination of warning light
- Inoperable windows
- Inoperable locking mechanisms
- Inoperable infotainment systems
- Inoperable back-up cameras
- Difficulty changing gears
- Malfunctioning air conditioning
- Premature wear
- Rough idle
- Sudden acceleration/deceleration
- Structural defects and a lot more
Lemon law symptoms typically affect major systems of your car, such as the electrical, engine, forward collision avoidance, steering, or transmission systems.
Your car’s issues can range from a malfunctional infotainment system to total engine failure. Any lemon issue that makes your car unsafe to drive, reduces its market value, or makes it impossible to use generally qualifies, as long as the vehicle was presented to an authorized manufacturer for repairs while the issue was under warranty. Note that the range of vehicle issues covered by California lemon law goes far beyond the list above.
If the manufacturer has been unable to repair your car’s issues within a reasonable number of repair attempts, then your vehicle may be a lemon. Typically, a “reasonable number” of repair attempts is at least four for any non-substantial safety defect, or two for a substantial safety defect that can cause injury or death.
Not every lemon law case fits neatly into California’s lemon law presumption—which is why it’s crucial to work with an experienced Fresno lemon law attorney who can help you determine if your vehicle qualifies and what you could potentially receive in compensation.
How much does it cost to hire a Fresno Lemon Law Attorney?
There should be zero upfront costs or retainer fees when you work with a lemon law attorney. Most lemon law firms work on a contingency basis, meaning that they do not get paid unless they settle your case.
You may have seen the phrase “we don’t get paid UNLESS you win!” This is another way to say that the attorney works on a contingency basis. This is your best option when paying for the legal services of a lemon law attorney.
There is no risk when you hire a lemon law attorney that works on a contingency basis. You can be assured that your attorney will work extremely hard to maximize the results of your case and to settle as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that the amount of time it can take to settle your case may vary.
Some cases can be resolved in as little as 90 days, while others can take over a year. The length of time it takes to receive your settlement depends on the unique facts of your lemon law case.
