Lemon Help

A qualified lemon law lawyer can often settle a lemon law claim without the need to file a lawsuit. What is often understood as “winning the case” by the consumer at this stage is more commonly known to the lawyer as “settlement” of the lemon law claim.

The need to escalate to filing a lawsuit can occur when the auto manufacturer refuses the lemon lawyer’s demand for restitution according to that state’s lemon law, and the consumer has already fulfilled any procedures required in their state prior to contacting the lemon law lawyer. Depending on the state’s lemon law and what state requirements the consumer has previously fulfilled, a lemon lawyer may be able to go directly to filing a lemon lawsuit, and skip the legal demand. “Winning the case”, as consumers often refer to in a lemon lawsuit, can be accomplished by the manufacturer agreeing with the consumer and consumers lawyer to a settlement of the case before trial, even during trial, or by or a favorable judgment to the consumer in court after trial by decision of a judge (bench trial) or jury.

A qualified lemon law lawyer in your state can explain this to you in greater detail.

Lemon Legal Costs

Any given lemon law case has attorneys fees and costs. What a case may cost you depends upon the attorney firm you choose, and what their policies are, or as are negotiated.

Some states lemon laws allow for the recovery of attorneys fees and/or costs. Some states do not.

There are numerous ways for lemon lawyers to charge for their services, too many in fact to list here. Some include “retainer fees” (money you give them in advance), or “billed fees” (pay from billing invoices) or other negotiated forms of payment.

Depending on which state you live in, and the lemon lawyer you choose, you may find the words “contingency fee” in their legal services agreement or advertising. A “contingency fee” case, in the broadest sense of the definition, is whereby the lemon lawyer “takes” or “accepts” the case, and his/her fees are contingent on a settlement, judgment or recovery in the vehicle owners favor. The lemon lawyer is taking the risk of advancing his/her billed time to pursue your lemon law case. Some lemon lawyers will also advance costs of suit. Some will not. Each state has it’s own provisions and rules for attorneys fees.

An experienced lemon law lawyer in your state is best qualified to discuss the topic of attorneys fees, as well as your states rules and potential provisions for attorneys fees and such.
