Experienced Lemon Law Lawyers in Ohio

When you buy a new car in Ohio, you’re entitled to a vehicle that works. So if your car is constantly in the shop for repairs, you may be eligible for a refund or a replacement vehicle under the Ohio Lemon Law. The law also states that the manufacturer must pay any legal fees associated with successful Lemon Law claims.

Thus, our attorneys will represent you at no direct cost to you. When you collect the compensation you deserve, the car company pays our fees. And because we only charge for successes, you still pay nothing in the rare instances where car companies prevail. So rather than fighting for your rights alone, let our experienced legal team help, without direct charge to you.

What Is the Lemon Law in Ohio?

The Lemon Law in Ohio protects consumers from purchasing defective motor vehicles. If you purchase a new vehicle with a defect or condition that substantially impairs its use, value, or safety, the law entitles you to a refund or a replacement vehicle. However, you must give the manufacturer an opportunity to resolve the issue first.

The defect(s), and at least the first repair attempt, must occur within the first year of ownership and before you’ve put 18,000 miles on the car. If the defect continues to exist after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the vehicle is a lemon and may be returned. The Ohio Lemon Law defines “a reasonable number of attempts” in a few different ways:

  • 1 attempt – for any defects likely to cause death or serious bodily injury
  • 3 attempts – for any single defect
  • 8 attempts – for any combination of defects
  • 30 days out of service – for any combination of defects

The law was designed with new, non-commercial motor vehicles in mind. So passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks, and certain recreational vehicles are covered. Mobile homes and manufactured homes are not covered.
