The difference between “essential” and “non-essential” business is not always strict. That’s a good thing when it comes to dealing with mechanics or dealers, but a bad thing when it comes to logistics. These businesses can technically remain open, but they must telecommute when possible. Many phonecalls we’ve received from potential new clients over the past few months are from folk worried that these businesses might be taking advantage of the situation.
For example, let’s say you bought a car before or during the coronavirus outbreak, but later determined your vehicle was a lemon. A mechanic will be all too happy to repair the vehicle — but coordinating with a dealership might be tricky. After all, just because they’re excited to sell you a vehicle doesn’t mean they’re excited at the prospect of being legally forced to buy it back!
And a global pandemic is probably the easiest way for a car dealership to cut contact with a former customer to avoid doing exactly that.
The good news is this: they can’t disobey the law even during a pandemic. Now that businesses are beginning to reopen, there is no excuse.
Do you believe that a car dealership or manufacturer reduced contact with you to avoid having to pay for repairs for a vehicle that turned out to be a lemon? Were you unable to travel to work because you couldn’t get your vehicle repaired? These are common issues, and you might have a strong case for litigation. You deserve compensation when these companies cost you money!
Until our offices open up, you might have to play the waiting game to move forward — but we can still telecommute or video conference to discuss the details of your case. This counts as a free consultation, so don’t delay! Call an experience lemon law attorney today.
