Is a Lemon Law lawsuit necessary?

We rarely have to file a Lemon lawsuit.

Most of our clients have never been involved in a lawsuit before, and prefer to avoid one if possible. We often get asked, “Is a Lemon Law lawsuit necessary?” 

The short answer is no. In the large majority of our Lemon Law cases, our Santa Monica Lemon Law lawyers do not have to file a lawsuit. Once we have all the necessary documents, we start every case by writing a letter to the vehicle manufacturer. More often than not, the manufacturer simply accepts our letter and offers to repurchase your vehicle. 

A lawsuit only becomes a consideration if the manufacturer refuses to repurchase your vehicle. At that point, our negotiation has likely come to a stand still. A lawsuit can be an effective tool to overcome that standstill. The manufacturer has to hire lawyers, and the Court gets involved. 

However, a lawsuit is never the first option. Lawsuits typically take a long time to resolve and often invade into your privacy. Each side is allowed to get information from one another, including some details you may prefer to keep private. 

We advise every client of the pro’s and con’s of a potential lawsuit, give our recommendation, and ultimately allow the client to make the final decision. Each person is different and some are more/less comfortable with a lawsuit. Thankfully, only a small percentage of our cases end up in Court.
