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.
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 pay him less when he is trying to resolve the case by himself, that`s why the manufacturers do not like when the customer`s interests are represented by a lemon law attorney. It will be logically to conclude that the presence a lemon law lawyer play`s into vehicle owner`s hands as his chances to get a larger monetary recovery rise. Moreover, if a vehicle owner is represented by a lemon law lawyers manufacturers are interested in resolving the case quickly in order not to increase the amount of attorney`s fees they are entitled 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 is not obliged to pay attorney`s fees; they will be covered by the automaker.
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 as 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 lawyer he can make many mistakes as a result of which 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 who will take the case on a contingency fee basis because its final outcome will be lower and the lawyer will apparently to be paid very little or nothing at all.
