Yes, you will be able to lemon your car if it was in an accident. According to the California Lemon Laws, your car needs to be under the original warranty for service from the manufacturer. In that case, you will want to tell the car dealership where you bought the vehicle about the defects that have been identified under the car warranty. At that time, the dealership will contact the manufacturer, and the manufacturer will need to have the car repaired in three reasonable attempts, under around 30 days.
If that defect is unable to be addressed, resolved and repaired in a reasonable amount of time, you will be under the advantage that the manufacturer needs to replace the vehicle for you. This means in many cases, that you will be given a new vehicle of the same make and model car that you purchased that had the defects.
Do I Need to Document All Repairs by the Manufacturer When There is a Manufacturer’s Defect on the Car?
Yes, you need to keep track of all of the correspondence, repairs and attempts to get the car defect issues resolved by the manufacturer. You should keep records of the following information, related to the defects on your car:
- When and how the defect on your car was noticed and identified.
- Who you called at the car dealership and the manufacturer’s regarding your defect.
- The dates of all calls and requests related to repairs to the vehicle.
- The report from the auto repair shop related to repairing your vehicle of its defects.
- A review with your lawyer regarding the California Lemon Laws on lemon vehicles.

Common Types of Accidents for a Car Hit by Someone Else
If your defective automobile was in an accident and hit by someone else, the defects related to your vehicle may have contributed to the accident. The manufacturer will need to determine the extent of the defects, how and if they can reasonably be repaired, and whether those defects were in fact a contributing factor to your car accident.
Here are some types of car accidents that you might have been in, which will cause you to experience a car crash on the road. You might have experienced another car:
- Running a stop light and hitting your car
- Running through a traffic signal to stop
- Speeding and hitting your car
- Driving too fast for rainy conditions and losing control
- Backing up improperly into oncoming traffic
- Failure to signal turning intention, and causing an accident
- Failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, hitting your car when you do stop
- Making an improper turn and hitting your car
- Tailgating to your car and hitting you when you stop
