What Happens When You Win A California Lemon Law Claim In San Diego?
In the simplest terms, our experienced team will either negotiate a replacement car from the dealership or return your money. Of course, those simple terms are hard to swallow when you have been driving around a vehicle that has been in and out of service for months or even years.
Perhaps the question should be rephrased as, “What happens if I do not win my lemon law claim?” This is important because one of our main goals at Scott Law Group P.C. is to avoid going to court whenever possible. That means we want to avoid arbitration, mediation, and trial by jury. In other words, we want to resolve cases as early as possible. However, there are instances when our clients would be better off having a judge decide their case.
In what cases would you want a jury deciding this matter? There are several factors that need to be considered. Keep in mind that there is no right or wrong answer here, and it should not be the driving force of your decision-making process. The following questions will help you figure things out:
Do I Have A Case?
If you think your claim sounds strong, then going to trial might make sense for you. In addition, if you do choose arbitration or mediation, having a judge hear your case may improve your chances of winning because we believe they tend to side with consumers more often than arbitrators and mediators.
If I win my lemon law claim, will the dealership give me a new car and refund my money? If the answer to this question is “no,” then going to trial might be your best option.
Are you giving up anything by not trying settlement or mediation first? Think about this for a minute. What if we go into arbitration or mediation and do not win? You will have lost months of time and perhaps some added expenses because of the time invested in pursuing your claim. On top of that, you may get nothing out of it while still being responsible for paying our fees!
However, if we can settle your case before the trial, you will not only save on the costs involved with taking your case to court but also avoid further inconvenience and possible risk (depending on what you decide to do).
What are our chances of winning? This is always a difficult question to answer. We can tell you that based on the cases we have handled, settlement amounts tend to rise over time.
