What is Lemon Law?
To refresh our reader's memories, lemon law is a branch of law that deals with the sale of cars or other products that repeatedly fail to meet basic standards of both quality and performance. When a vehicle is considered a “lemon,” claimants have a right to pursue compensation for their defective product.
What Are the Next Steps After a Lemon Law Case is Won?
Once you win your lemon law case, the manufacturer or seller of the lemon product must do one of two things: either provide a full refund or replace the lemon product with a comparable model. Depending on what was agreed upon in court, this may include additional damages related to your lemon law claim.
If a full refund is provided, this includes the lemon product itself, all collateral costs associated with its purchase (such as taxes and fees), and any other incidental damages you may have incurred.
You should also be reimbursed for any legal fees associated with your lemon law claim. This can include attorney's fees, court costs, and other related expenses. Make sure to keep all your receipts and records related to the lemon law case, as this will make it easier for you to get reimbursed.
Once you have been made whole in terms of reimbursement or a lemon product replacement, you should be free to move on with your life. Remember that lemon laws are in place to give consumers like you protection when it comes to lemon products, so never hesitate to file a lemon law claim if you feel like your rights have been violated.
