Northern California Lemon Law Attorney

Typically "lemons" are qualified as light-duty vehicles purchased for personal and family use that fail to conform to minimum warranted standards.  A motor home under California law may also be a "lemon," as may a motorcycle.  if you have a boat, off-road vehicle, or towable recreational vehicle, then your vehicle might not fall into the category of a "California Lemon," however, there are other Federal and State warranty acts that may offer you protection.

Also, a car does not need to leave you "stranded" to be a lemon.  Lemon Law Attorney John Hendrickson has successfully negotiated or litigated and settled lemon law cases for things such as:

  • Convertible tops failing to open or close properly
  • Water leaks around the door or roof
  • "Bouncy" suspension 
  • Vehicle stalling
  • Transmission slipping into neutral or downshifting while driving
  • Transmission failing to shift properly
  • Excessive Oil Consumption
  • Airbag, Seatbelt, or Brake sensors malfunctioning
  • Radio malfunctions 

You don't need to put up with a car that does not work properly.  And you do not need to spend a fortune to enforce your rights. Once we determine you have a lemon law claim, you can typically expect results in 30-60 days with no out-of-pocket costs.  The manufacturer pays your attorney's fees.

Where you live is not important

Almost everything can be handled via telephone, email, facsimile, and mail.  Hendrickson Legal Services has served clients from San Diego, to Eureka, to Truckee.  Save your time and energy to shop for a new vehicle, and let an experienced attorney help you return the old one.

What are you entitled to if your car is a "lemon?"

  • A replacement vehicle; or
  • A refund of money paid for the vehicle

The manufacturer may be entitled, under the law, to some "offsets" for your use.  Also, any accessories added to your vehicle may not be eligible for reimbursement.  Additionally, if you have added non-factory upgrades to your vehicle, you may have voided the warranty and may not be eligible for protect under the lemon law statutes.  In certain cases, the manufacturer may offer to pay you to keep your vehicle.  Every situation is different, let our professional help navigate the auto warranty process.

During our interview process, we can typically estimate what you are entitled to if you want to return the vehicle to the manufacturer.  If you would rather obtain a replacement vehicle, we will be able to estimate fees associated with the replacement as well.  And we will be able to assist you in making the appropriate choice, depending on your unique situation.
