How Much Does a Los Angeles Lemon Law Lawyer Cost?

How Much Does a Los Angeles Lemon Law Lawyer Cost?

An experienced Los Angeles lemon law attorney may receive hundreds or thousands of dollars for winning a lemon law claim. That money, however, comes from the automaker – not from the vehicle owner the lawyer represents. 

When a vehicle owner succeeds in their lemon law claim, California law allows the owner to receive at least three different types of damages: 

  • A replacement vehicle or a refund of the purchase price, whichever the owner prefers,
  • Incidental and consequential damages, and
  • Attorney’s fees and costs.

Where the auto maker or distributor has willfully failed to repurchase or replace your defective vehicle, you may also be entitled to civil penalty damages up to two times the total of your other actual damages.

Many vehicle owners focus on the replacement vehicle or refund. Yet the other categories of compensation can be precious. 

When an automaker is held liable for selling or leasing a lemon, the automaker must cover the attorney’s fees and costs for the person who bought or leased the defective vehicle. The vehicle owner doesn’t have to pay for their lawyer out of pocket, nor do they have to use part of their refund or other damages to pay their attorney. Compensation for their lawyer becomes the automaker’s responsibility. This allows you,  the consumer, to get the best lawyers available to fight against the automakers’ army of attorneys.

Experienced Los Angeles lemon lawyers understand how each category of damages might apply in a lemon law case. They fight for the maximum compensation for each client.
