Lemon Law Attorneys for the Fort Lauderdale Area

We Help You Collect the Compensation You Deserve

Roughly 1 in every 100 vehicles ends up being a Lemon. With more than 7,000,000 vehicles registered in Florida, that means there are likely thousands of Lemons in the Sunshine State. If you’ve purchased or leased a defective vehicle, our Lemon Law attorneys in the Fort Lauderdale area can help you hold the car company accountable.

When Floridians win their Lemon Law claim in court, they get their choice of a refund or replacement vehicle in exchange for the Lemon. Plus, the car company must pay the consumer’s attorneys’ fees!

Lemon Law Requirements in Fort Lauderdale, FL

To qualify as a Lemon, your vehicle must have a defect that substantially impairs its use, value, or safety. The Florida Lemon Law also guarantees manufacturers a chance to repair the issue before you can make a claim. But if the manufacturer fails to fix the issue after three attempts or 15 days, you can begin to take action.

Florida Lemon Law FAQs

We should note that to qualify for compensation under the state Lemon Law the repair attempts must take place during the Lemon Law rights period. That period lasts for 24 months after you take ownership of the vehicle. For used vehicles, the Lemon Law rights period extends for 24 months from the date on which the original owner took possession of the vehicle.

But even if your vehicle’s issues arose after 24 months, you may still have a claim. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act provides consumer protection similar to that of the State law. And this “federal Lemon Law” applies to virtually any consumer product. Best of all, you can file claims for any warrantied defects. And given that most cars’ warranties last for three years or more, this federal law provides you with a longer window to make a claim.

How the Lemon Law Works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Once your vehicle has been out of service for repairs for 15 days, or the repair facility has failed a number of repair attempts, the next step is to send the written notice to the manufacturer. Your Ft. Lauderdale Lemon Law lawyer can do this on your behalf.

Next, the manufacturer will direct you to one of their authorized repair facilities for one final repair attempt. If the defect is still present after this attempt, your vehicle is a Lemon. But before you can take your claim to court, you must attempt to resolve the issue via the manufacturer’s arbitration program. Our Florida Lemon Law attorney can handle this on your behalf, too.

After presenting your case to the arbitrators, they’ll provide a decision as to whether or not you deserve to be compensated for your Lemon. If you’re satisfied with the decision, you simply collect what you’re owed and wash your hands of the matter. If you’re not happy with the decision, then we file your claim with the courts.

It’s unlikely that your case will need to go to trial. In fact, more than 99% of our cases settle before going to trial.
