We Defend Your Lemon Law Rights in Los Angeles

In a city where everything is 30 minutes away by car, unreliable vehicles are more than minor inconveniences. If your vehicle has been in the shop multiple times because of the same warrantied issue, our Lemon Law attorneys in Los Angeles can help you stand up for your rights. And we do so at NO COST TO YOU!

The Lemon Law in Los Angeles allows consumers to return defective vehicles for a refund or replacement vehicle. You simply need to prove your vehicle is a Lemon to collect. And our team of experienced Lemon Law lawyers in Los Angeles can help you gather the evidence to do just that.

What to Do When You Have a Lemon in Los Angeles

If you notice a defect in your vehicle during the warranty period, you should always start by bringing it in for repairs. The manufacturer must fail to fix the issue multiple times before the vehicle can be considered a Lemon.

If the defect has the potential to cause death or serious injury, you can take legal action after just two failed repairs. For less dangerous defects, you’ll need to provide the manufacturer with four repair attempts. Additionally, vehicles that remain out of service for repair for more than 30 days qualify as Lemons, regardless of the number of repair attempts or the severity of the defect(s).

After hassling with these failed repair attempts, you should reach out for legal advice. An experienced attorney, like those at Krohn & Moss, Ltd., can tell almost instantly whether the Lemon Law will protect you. When we think that your claim has even a chance of success, we’ll gladly take your case without asking for a retainer or any other form of upfront payment.

Our Lemon Law attorneys in Los Angeles don’t get paid unless you do. And when you win a Lemon Law case in L.A., the CA Lemon Law forces the car company to pay your attorneys’ fees!

Next, you’ll need to gather the evidence that supports your claim. In most cases, you’ll only need your vehicle’s repair records and the documents from the sale or lease. Don’t worry if you can’t locate these documents. We can track down any records you don’t have.

Once we have your documents, we present your case for arbitration if the manufacturer has an arbitration program that complies with federal and state law. Many of our cases settle during this part of the process because car companies know that taking your case to trial will likely cost them a lot more. Paying for their attorneys AND yours is expensive.

FAQs about the California Lemon Law

When we receive a settlement offer, we’re legally required to present it to you. Only you can decide to accept it or not. Our Los Angeles Lemon Law lawyers will counsel you on whether we think the offer is fair, but the choice to accept or reject the offer is yours to make. If you don’t accept a settlement, our next step will be to file suit.

However, fewer than 1% of our cases have ever gone to trial, so it’s unlikely that one will be necessary in your case. Once manufacturers realize that we’ll stop at nothing to secure the recovery you deserve, they almost always offer settlements that satisfy our clients. But if we need to take your case to trial, we’re always ready and able to go the distance for our clients.

How We Prevail in More than 99% of Lemon Law Cases

At Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center®, we always offer free consultations to provide consumers with an honest assessment of their situation. In reviewing claims, we simply verify that the vehicle in question meets the definition of a Lemon under California’s Lemon Law. To qualify as a Lemon under this law, the vehicle’s defect(s) must meet a few basic conditions.

  • The defect must substantially impair the vehicle’s use, value, or safety;
  • it must be covered by the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty; AND
  • the defect must still exist after you provide the manufacturer with a reasonable number of attempts to repair it.

The vehicle itself must also meet a few conditions:

  • The vehicle must be purchased or leased in California in a retail transaction;
  • it must be a passenger vehicle;
  • it must weigh less than 10,000 lbs; AND
  • it must belong to an individual or business with no more than 5 vehicles registered in CA.

If your vehicle and its defect(s) meet these qualifications, our Los Angeles Lemon Law attorneys will take your case as far as necessary to get you the compensation you’re rightfully owed. With our policy of reviewing claims before taking them on, we avoid wasting anyone’s time with false hopes of a recovery. And when we accept your case, you should feel very confident about your chances of success given that more than 99% of our cases settle without the need for a trial.

By offering free case evaluations and refusing to collect attorney’s fees unless we prevail, we make it possible for anyone to stand up to car companies.

Best of all, when we prevail, the car company pays our fees, not you. The Lemon Law in Los Angeles protects consumers with a fee-shifting provision that holds manufacturers responsible for the consumer’s attorney’s fees. The law even forces the manufacturer to reimburse you for other fees and costs you incur because of your Lemon, like towing fees or rental car costs.

It only takes a few minutes to touch base with our California Lemon Law lawyers. So, if you have a Lemon, don’t waste another minute of your time trying to resolve the issue by yourself. You’ve spent enough time dealing with that headache. Let us take the fight to the car companies for you so that the next “headache” you have to deal with is deciding whether you want a refund or a replacement vehicle.
