How Long Does the Lemon Law Process Take?

When you find out that your vehicle is a lemon, the first thought that likely comes to mind is “how long is this process going to take?” Our team at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® will work as diligently as possible to get you the fastest resolution possible. We will start the process in most cases by providing notice to the automobile manufacturer of your claims in order to give them a chance to resolve your case without litigation. In other situations, we will apply for arbitration to attempt to resolve your case without filing a lawsuit. If a lawsuit does become necessary, over 97 percent of our cases still end up settling without a trial.

Factors to Consider

With so many moving parts in any given case, it’s important to stay patient when pursuing a case under the Lemon Law. Some cases may be resolved within the two (2) week notice period we typically provide manufacturers to settle, and, in rare instances, some cases go to trial. Here are some factors that will determine how long your lemon law case takes:
  • The facts of the specific case, including the nature of the defects and the number of times it has been subject to repairs. The stronger your case, the more likely it will settle quickly.
  • The car manufacturer – some car manufacturers take a more aggressive stance than others in defending the case.
  • The judge who is assigned your case if a lawsuit is filed – some judges have a busier docket than others.
  • Your willingness to settle – the fact of the matter is that you 100% control settlement. No case will ever settle unless you approve the settlement. While we will give you our thoughts, advice, and opinion on how to proceed, the settlement is always our client’s choice. Therefore, we will pursue the case as long as it takes unless you instruct us to accept a settlement.
