When Should I Conside Seeing A Lawyer?

If arbitration fails, or if you did not have to use arbitration and did not want to, you should consider seeing a private attorney. Many people are reluctant to do this, but we encourage it. Some manufacturers, unfortunately, do not take consumer complaints too seriously until they hear from an attorney. Your attorney can advise you best what to do with the car and whether to stop making payments.

The lemon law provides that you can recover triple damages and attorney`s fees if the manufacturer is found to have unreasonably refused to resolve your complaint.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
