Reliable Lemon Law Attorney In Oak Park MI - Adam Alexander - consumer

Lemon Laws are state guidelines that protect buyers of cars and other consumer goods from products that do not meet quality or performance standards, often called a "lemon." If you've recently purchased a defective car, motorcycle, truck, or SUV you may be entitled to compensation.


Consumers covered under Lemon Law are individuals who have:

  • Purchased or leased a new vehicle for personal, family or household use and not for the purpose of selling.
  • Purchases or leases 10 or more new vehicles a year only if the vehicles are purchased or leased for personal, family or household use.

So your vehicle has been out of service 4 times for the same problem. Or it has been out of service for 30 cumulative days. It's a Lemon, right? You should be able to show the manufacturer your repair invoices and get your vehicle repurchased or replaced immediately. Case closed.



The Different Categories Of Lemon Law in Oak Park

No Substantial Impairment

To understand if your problem is substantial, and to effectively prosecute your case, you have to employ an attorney who is an expert in the language of the Lemon Law who has dealt with this issue hundreds of times and will fight for your rights. In response to a "substantial impairment defense," Adam S. Alexander, Esq. has utilized creative legal strategies, expert testimony and other evidence to recover for his clients. Be advised that the vast majority of Lemon Law cases are settled quickly and efficiently with no trial or arbitration. However, on those rare occasions where the dispute cannot be settled, you certainly want an expert in your corner.


Not The Same Problem

The Michigan Lemon Law requires that the same defect or condition be subject to the appropriate number of repairs, {(MCL 257.1403(5)(a)}. Manufacturers use this language to cloud the issues and argue that one transmission problem was not the same as the next or argue that the 2nd repair for engine noise was not the same as the 4th repair for engine noise, etc. This is often simply a legal trick to avoid liability. They will do anything to prove your vehicle was not subject to the required number of repair attempts. There are several ways to combat this manufacturer allegation and only the most seasoned and experienced Lemon Law attorney will have the background to counter it.


Business Purposes

The Lemon Law says that a consumer is "A person who purchases or leases a new motor vehicle for personal, family, or household use, {(MCL 257.1401(a)(I)}. Manufacturers will sometimes argue that you are not entitled to use the Lemon Law if:


You write off your vehicle for tax purposes or purchase your vehicle in the name of your business. There are several legal strategies to fight these allegations and still allow you to recover. Not every attorney knows how to defeat this argument. You need an experienced attorney who understands how to confront and counter the business purpose defense and get you the remedy you desire.



Foreclosure & Identity Theft Attorney Services in Oak Park

You can stop a collector from contacting you by writing a letter to the collection agency telling them to stop. Once they receive your letter, they may not contact you again except to say there will be no further contact. The agency may notify you if the debt collector or the creditor intends to take some specific action.


A collector may not contact you if, within 30 days after you are first contacted, you send the collection agency a letter stating you do not owe money. However, a collector can renew collection activities if you are sent proof of the debt, such as a copy of a bill for the amount owed.


Many consumers don't know or understand there are laws to protect them against the harsh debt collectors and creditors. These laws are intended to protect consumers from collection agencies that violate the law and creditors who wrongfully blemish their credit reports.
