Can I File My Own Lemon Law Case? Or Do I Need An Attorney?
You’re asking a lawyer. So naturally, I’m gonna say it’s a lot better if you hire a lawyer, but you can make a claim on your own. Some states even make you file the claim on your own because they don’t want to have to pay more than whatever the minimum is.
And that’s essentially what happens when people file claims on their own. The manufacturer tells them this is the best we can do, and that’s not always the best they can do. So it’s always good to have a lawyer in your corner.
Are Lemon Law Settlements Taxable?
Yes, but I’m not a CPA. So when you get your check, talk to your CPA, it most likely will be considered income.
Are Lemon Law Lawyers Free?
Technically, they’re free in the sense that you’re not writing a check for every hour that they work, but we are paid at the resolution of the case. So what that means is when you recover, we recover. We work on a percentage basis, which is called a contingency fee.
Can Lemon Law Be Applied To Used Cars?
Yes. Used cars can be lemons. The key is whether the car is still under warranty. The original manufacturer’s warranty extends to any purchaser, whether it’s a brand new car or a used car, as long as it’s covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, you might have a lemon if your car has problems.
How Do I Know If I Qualify For A Lemon Law Case?
The simple answer is you’ve got a car, it’s got problems.
You can’t fix the problems even after one or two or three times, and it’s still under a warranty, but just to make sure the best way to know if you’ve got a car that qualifies as a lemon, is to call us, and we’ll talk about it.
