How do accidents affect Lemon Law?

Accidents can have an affect. This one is tricky.

We know better than anyone that accidents can happen, and happen often. If you were involved in a fender-bender, or worse, you may be wondering, “How do accidents affect Lemon Law?”

An accident can certainly have an impact on your potential Lemon Law case, but it may not prevent you from having a successful case. Our Santa Monica Lemon Law attorneys have successfully represented numerous clients who were involved in an accident with their Lemon vehicle. 

When determining how much of an impact your accident history may have on your Lemon Law claim, it’s important to understand your vehicle’s issues. Below is a short list of just some of the questions we consider:

  • Do the issues affecting your vehicle relate to the structure of your vehicle? For example, a door not shutting properly.
  • Are the issues affecting your vehicle specific to the area that was damaged in your accident? Or are they completely unrelated?
  • Were the repairs done at a reputable facility?
  • How extensive was the damage to your vehicle?
  • Did the issues affecting your vehicle exist before your accident?

As you can imagine, Lemon Law claims for vehicles with an accident history can sometimes be difficult. We determine on a case-by-case basis the likelihood of a successful claim despite a prior accident.
