Lemon Law Resources

The term lemon law refers to a set of American laws that provide help for someone who purchases a vehicle that consistently fails to meet the standards of performance and quality. Cars that are vulnerable to the laws are referred to as lemons. While there is a federal lemon law that protects people in all states, state lemon laws vary, for instance some states do not cover cars that are leased or bought used. There are various situations in which your car may be covered by lemon laws so it is helpful to know the lemon laws for the state in which you live. If you pursue and are successful in a lemon law case, most states require that the warranter pay your attorney fees and you may qualify fir money or a replacement car. Lemon laws cover cars as well as motorcycles, RV's, boats, and even computers and wheelchairs. Lemon laws can be somewhat complicated and oftentimes confusing so it might be a good idea to speak with a lawyer in your state that specializes in dealing with lemon laws.
