Auto defects can result in serious or catastrophic injuries or even death. Defective auto products can cause injuries including:
California's lemon law is designed to protect consumers who discover a serious flaw in a vehicle they have purchased or leased, which cannot be repaired. The lemon law applies to any problem, which "substantially impairs, the use, value or safety" of a car covered by a manufacturer's new vehicle warranty. The catch is that the problem must be discovered within 18 months or 18,000 miles of purchase or lease. Even if you purchased a used car, the law applies to the vehicle if the original warranty is still in effect.
If the manufacturer cannot fix the problem, they must replace your car with a new one that is "substantially identical" or refund your money. It is your choice. The manufacturer can charge you for the mileage you have put on the flawed vehicle. Manufacturers are allowed a "reasonable" number of repair attempts before a car is branded as a lemon. Typically, the law states that the manufacturer has four attempts to repair the vehicle. However, if your vehicle has potentially dangerous defects such as faulty brakes, then, they get only two attempts. Also, if your vehicle has been in the shop for more than 30 days and is still not fixed, you are entitled to a replacement vehicle or a refund.
In order to settle Lemon Law disputes, many manufacturers participate in the state-certified arbitration program. If you go to arbitration, you could either accept or reject the arbitrator's decision. If you reject it, you can still take your case to court. You could either represent yourself in these types of cases or you could choose to retain the services of an experienced California Lemon Law attorney who will help you prove your case and help you obtain the compensation you rightfully deserve. We do not handle Lemon Law cases.
Our law firm helps victims who have been injured as a result of a defective vehicle. We examine the circumstances of the incident based on the police report, eyewitness accounts and physical evidence. If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to preserve the vehicle because it is the most important piece of evidence in an auto accident case or an auto product liability case. We have access to nationally renowned experts who will examine the vehicle for evidence of defects, malfunctions and design flaws. We examine a vehicle for its crashworthiness or its ability to protect its occupants in the event of a crash.
We help injured victims obtain compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and emotional distress. We have represented injured clients against large automakers. We fight for the rights of those consumers who bought a poorly manufactured or poorly designed vehicle and paid a horrible price for it. We are passionate in our pursuit for justice when it comes to these injured victims and their families. We find automakers' practice of putting profits before people's lives simply unacceptable.
