Anytime you face a major event in your life, it is normal to wonder about its outcome. Filing a legal claim, even one centered on Virginia’s lemon law, is indeed a major life event. It would be wonderful if you could know ahead of time if your efforts will find success, but as most people know, this is not always possible.
One of the best ways of finding out about your odds of success in a lemon law claim is to take your story to a qualified attorney. He or she will look at the evidence related to your case objectively and give you advice as well as a recommendation. In the end, it will be your choice about whether to proceed with filing a lemon law claim.
Like any legal process, there is no guarantee that you will win your lemon law case. However, an objective viewpoint combined with a legally educated mind that understands what it takes to win can make a huge difference in your claim’s outcome.
For example, say you were sold a defective and unsafe automobile. In accordance with the state’s lemon law, you tried repeatedly to have the vehicle’s “manufacturer, its agents, or its authorized dealers” repair the problem. If these efforts failed, your lawyer may advise you to move forward with your claim based on the car’s defects, the actions of the responsible parties and the presence of evidence that supports your claim.
As you can see, knowledge of the state’s lemon law combined with the opinion of a legal professional can help you make an informed decision about the odds of winning your claim.
