The Business Vehicle Loophole Every Business Owner Needs to Know

Who doesn’t love a good loophole every now and then? Especially if you’re eligible and there’s the possibility for your business to save you big bucks. This loophole is for all of our business owners out there who own business vehicles.

California’s lemon law is more formally known as the Tanner Consumer Protection Act. More specifically, the law protects consumers when an authorized dealership/service department can’t service or repair “new” vehicle after a “reasonable” number of attempts. Often, we’re able to force the manufacturer to repurchase our client’s car, and repay them nearly all of their money. Some of our clients have recovered in excess of $100,000, and didn’t pay us a penny in legal fee. How’s that? The Tanner Consumer Protection Act allows for lemon law clients to recover their attorneys’ fees directly from the manufacturer.

Whatever You Do, Don’t Say “Insurance”

Whatever you do, don’t say the word “insurance.”  That’s assuming you want to avoid a mistrial, getting a much-deserved ear beating by the judge, and sanctions. 

So, what’s the big deal?  How is it that one word carries so much weight?  Well it’s less about the word “insurance” and more about the effect it may have on a jury.  Fearing evidence of the presence or absence of insurance may sway jurors in one direction or the other, there are several sources of law that prevent the mention of existence of insurance in personal injury cases and many other types of trials.

Are You Leasing A Lemon? Tips from Santa Monica’s Top-Rated Lemon Lawyer

If you’re leasing your vehicle, chances are it’s covered under the manufacturer’s original warranty. If you’re lucky, the services are free (although this is becoming less and less common). But what happens if your car starts spending more and more time in service? Well, it’s entirely possible that you are driving a proverbial “Lemon” and are owed thousands (and thousands!) of dollars. You may be leasing a lemon.

Many consumers wonder whether California’s Lemon Law applies to leased vehicles, and the answer is yes. California’s Lemon Law actually makes no substantive distinction between leased and purchased vehicles, which is great because statistics show that more and more consumers choose to lease their vehicles rather than buy.
