Frequently Asked WV Lemon Law Questions
Q. What is the lemon law?
A. Lemon Law is a law that protects consumers who buy cars and trucks that are covered under a manufacturers warranty, and need repeated repairs. Most states, like West Virginia and Ohio, have lemon laws.
Q. How do I know if my vehicle is a lemon?
A. If your vehicle is unable to be fixed after a certain number of repair attempts within a certain time, under the law it may be presumed a lemon. Under West Virginia Lemon Law this happens if, in the first year, the manufacturer has either:
- tried to fix the same problem after three repair attempts and it still exists
- tried to fix the same problem involving safety once and it still exists
- the car has been in the shop all together for 30 days or more.
Q. Can you help me if I don’t meet the West Virginia Lemon Law standards?
A. There are a number of other laws that we use to help people, even when they don’t meet the requirements of a West Virginia Lemon Law. These laws don’t have the same repair requirements and include the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act and the Uniform Commercial Code.
Q. If I have a lemon law or other claim what will happen with my car?
A. WV Lemon Law attorney John Ellem may be able to get you a FULL refund of your purchase price, including all taxes, title and fees. Other common options include a cash settlement and keeping your vehicle or accepting a similar vehicle as a replacement.
Q. How much will a lawyer cost me?
A. As your WV Lemon Law attorney, Ellem Law Office does not charge you any attorney fees – we get our legal fees from the manufacturer. Call or email us to schedule an initial consultation to find out more about how we can help you.
