Experienced Florida Lemon Law Attorneys Help You Get Your Car Replaced
Jacksonville firm assists individuals who have purchased a defective automobile
When you purchase a brand new vehicle from a dealer, you expect that it should work right for years before needing major repairs. Unfortunately, some cars come off of the assembly line with serious problems that are not easily fixed or diagnosed. A defective new vehicle is often called a “lemon.” Kaleel Law, LLC works with clients who have recently purchased a new car or truck, only to find out that it is a lemon. Our Florida attorney is well-versed in Florida lemon law and will work to get you the new car you paid for. If your new car needs constant repairs, you need an attorney.
What makes a car a lemon?
Determining whether a car is a lemon can be tricky as many factors must be assessed carefully and in a timely manner. Florida law requires a manufacturer to refund or replace your purchase if your new car is determined to be a lemon. In Florida, this typically means a defect in the vehicle was not repaired at all or repaired in a timely manner.
A vehicle might also be determined to be a lemon if it is out of service for more than 30 days within the Lemon Law rights period of 24 months following original delivery to a consumer. The attorneys at our firm can help you understand how the lemon laws in Florida apply to your purchase.
Enforcing your rights under The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
Federal law protects you anytime you buy something costing more than $25 that comes with a written warranty. This applies to nearly all new car purchases. The Act works to make sure that warranties are fair, and to hold manufacturers accountable when they aren’t. When a claim is successful under the Act, the manufacturer is responsible for paying your attorney’s fees.
Understanding the Uniform Commercial Code
The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) governs nearly all commercial transactions, including the sale of cars. The UCC is not federal law. Instead, each state has adopted it separately. Our firm helps clients understand their rights under the UCC in Florida.
