When a person buys a new car, they are ecstatic about their new purchase. However, their excitement can quickly diminish when they begin experiencing problems with the automobile. It can be upsetting to learn the new car they just purchased has a serious flaw that makes it undrivable or decreases the auto’s value. The West Virginia Lemon Law was developed to protect consumers from experiencing a financial loss on an automobile that will not function as a normal car should. The law prevents manufacturers from forcing the buyer to be stuck with a vehicle that is unsafe to drive and the defect radically decreases how much the car can be resold for.
How the Lemon Law Works for Consumers
* The West Virginia Lemon Law will allow the consumer to receive a replacement vehicle from the manufacturer.
* If the company does not replace the automobile, they can be responsible for fully or partially refunding the buyer the money they paid for the vehicle.
* The consumer can be reimbursed for any inconvenience they experienced from not being able to use the car.
* Attorney fees if they hire a lawyer to handle their claim.
* They can be compensated for any money spent on making repairs to the automobile.
