Is your new car a lemon? If so, you could have grounds to file a claim under the lemon law. You could also have grounds to recover compensation.

If so, you can contact us today. Our Spanish speaking lemon law lawyers are more than ready to help you understand your rights and guide you every step of the way.
The Importance of Finding Legal Help in Your Preferred Language
Whether someone is fluent in both Spanish and English or only speaks some English, it is important to note that they likely have a preferred language. In most cases, people feel more comfortable communicating in their native language, even if they speak another language fluently. The truth is that there is comfort in speaking your native language. In addition, it is normal to feel more comfortable handling important matters in your first language.
Of course, those who only speak Spanish have the right to sue just like any other English-speaker. Unfortunately, many members of the Spanish speaking community do not pursue their right to file lawsuits because of language barriers – they cannot find the answers to their questions in Spanish and/or they cannot find a lawyer that can help them completely in Spanish.
Here at our law firm, we believe that everyone should have access to important legal services no matter the language that they speak. If you are ready to discuss your legal options with our Spanish speaking lemon law lawyers, contact the experts here at our law firm today.

Summary of California’s Lemon Law
California’s lemon law (Civil Code § 1793.2 et seq.) protects consumers who have purchased or leased a defective vehicle that cannot be repaired after reasonable repair attempts. The law applies to all vehicles that were either purchased or leased and are still under the manufacturer’s new-vehicle warranty. In other words, affected consumers (those who were sold a defective vehicle) can have the right to file a lemon law claim and recover compensation.
What is a Lemon?
A “lemon” is any vehicle that is defective, even after multiple repair attempts, and ultimately unsafe to drive. There are many different defects that could be found in lemon vehicles, including issues with breaks, emergency braking systems, electric systems, engine, and transmission. Of course, anyone who has ever driven a car knows that some different issues develop with normal use. When it comes to lemons, however, the issues appear early (usually with only weeks or months of normal use) because the issues are directly related to a defect. With these, even multiple repair attempts cannot address the issue, so the issue persists.
Do I Have the Right to File a Lemon Law Claim?
This is one of the most common questions that consumers have after realizing that their car is a lemon. So, do you have the right to file a lemon law lawsuit under the state’s lemon law? Yes – you could have the right to file a claim under the lemon law. More specifically, if your car is defective and still under the manufacturer’s new-vehicle warranty, then you could file a claim under the lemon law.
For more information about your right to file a lemon law claim for your defective vehicle, contact our Spanish speaking lemon law lawyers in Orange County immediately. Our lawyers are ready to help you better understand your legal options.
Can I Recover Compensation?
Yes – you could be eligible to recover compensation if your lemon law claim is successful. What could you recover? What categories of compensation can you receive? In general, lemon law claims could result in the following compensation:
- A replacement vehicle or a full refund for what you paid for the vehicle (including down payment, trade-in value, all government fees, and all payments already made)
- Reimbursement for all out-of-pocket costs (including repair costs, costs for rental cars during repairs, towing costs, etc.)
- all legal fees
For more information about the specific type and amount of compensation that you could recover, contact the experts here at our law firm immediately. Our Spanish speaking lemon law lawyers here in Orange County are ready to provide you with absolutely all the information that you need to pursue your lemon law claim and recover compensation.
What Should I Do If I have a Lemon?
Like already mentioned, you could have the right to sue. There are many things that you should do to prepare to file your claim. Consider some of the following suggestions:
- Keep all records associated with repairs.
- Keep all records of communications with the dealership.
- Seek the guidance of an experienced lemon law lawyer.
We understand that it can be very frustrating to find out that your new vehicle is a lemon. It can be even more frustrating to think about starting the legal process. If you are ever unsure of what you should do next, or what you should do in general, we recommend that you simply reach out to one of experts here at our law firm immediately.
The Statute of Limitations – How Long Do I Have to Sue?
All claims – including lemon law claims filed for defective vehicles – are subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations determines the length of time that claimants have to sue. If claimants do not file their claims on time, then they can lose their right to sue. So, how long do you have to file your claim? In California, lemon law claims are subject to a four-year statute of limitations. This means that claimants could have up to four years to file a lemon law claim. This is a relatively long time to sue; however, we recommend that affected parties take action immediately. For more information about the total length of time that you have to file a lemon law claim, contact us today. Our Spanish speaking lemon law lawyers here in Orange County are ready to help you.
