As defined by the California lemon law statute the manufacturers are obliged to replace or repurchase vehicles still covered by original warranty when they are not able to fix vehicle defect within a reasonable number of attempts. If a lemon car is replaced or repurchased it is called a lemon law buyback. Vehicle owners entitled to lemon law buyback can also apply for compensation of “incidental damages” which include towing charges, repair expenses etc. So what about a lemon law buyback claim?
Lemon law buyback claim
As a rule, automakers prefer to settle the lemon law buyback claim with the vehicle owner. They can easily fool the customer with smooth talk. And then pay him less when he is trying to resolve the case by himself. That is why the manufacturers do not like when the lemon law attorney represents the customer’s interests. It will be logical to conclude: the presence a lemon law lawyer plays into vehicle owner`s hands. Well, because his chances to get a larger monetary recovery rise. Moreover, imagine that a lemon law lawyer represents the vehicle’s owner. In this case, manufacturers want to resolve the case quickly. And you know why? In order not to increase the number of attorney’s fees they are going to pay.
The idea of enlisting the support of qualified lemon law attorney seems more attractive when it becomes clear that the attorney will take the case on a contingency basis. It means that the vehicle owner does not have to pay attorney`s fees; the automaker will cover them.
Are these enough benefits?
The benefits of hiring a lemon law lawyer to handle your case are not limited to those mentioned above. Attempts to settle a lemon law buyback case by non-lawyers won`t probably be successful. Because a consumer who does not fully understand all the aspect of the laws will damage the case. When a lemon vehicle owner talks to the automaker without a lawyer he can make many mistakes. As a result, the amount of reimbursement the manufacturer is entitled to pay him will be considerably decreased. In the event, he agrees to the manufacturer`s offer it will be quite unfeasible to find a lemon law lawyer. Especially one, who will take the case on a contingency fee basis. And you know why? Because its final outcome will be lower and the lawyer will apparently get very little or nothing at all.
