Norman Taylor and Associates have reached a Milestone: he and his firm's (present and past) have reached over "One Hundred Million in Lemon Law Case - Manufacturer and Dealership Buy Backs".
Attorney Norman F.Taylor has been representing “lemon law” consumers in California since 1987.
He and his prior firms have handled thousands of cases and have now forced manufacturers to buy back over $100,000,000 in defective consumer goods pursuant to the “Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act,” better known as California’s “lemon law".
Mr. Taylor has been recognized nationally as a leading authority in this field:
Mr.Taylor has authored two books on the subject of “lemon law,” the first in 1991 and more recently in 2005.He has appeared on over 60 radio and television programs, including CNN’s “Daywatch” as an authority on “lemon law". The California Judicial Council recognized his expertise in the field of “lemon law” by inviting his participation in the creation of standardized jury instructions for “lemon law” cases.He has also assisted consumer advocacy groups in proposing and securing amendments to the California “lemon law,” to keep it strong on behalf of consumers.
What is the California Lemon Law?
"When someone buys a new consumer product, such as a car, it typically comes with a warranty from the manufacturer, promising to fix it if anything goes wrong."
Sometimes, however, the repair shop simply cannot fix it, even after several tries.
Consumers have traditionally called such persistently defective products “lemons".
California’s “lemon law” applies not only to motor vehicles, but also to motor homes, motorcycles, boats and even to appliances and any other consumer product sold with a warranty.It applies equally to both sales and leases.
It typically covers only new products, but under certain circumstances it will cover used goods as well, particularly used cars.
The law provides that, where a manufacturer cannot repair consumer goods after a reasonable number of attempts, and the defect is substantial, it must either replace the defective product or refund the consumer’s money.
Consumers do not have to demand what they are rightfully entitled to under the law.
Instead, the “lemon law” imposes an affirmative duty on manufacturers to make the consumer an appropriate offer, once a reasonable number of attempts to repair the goods have failed.
If a manufacturer fails or refuses to offer a replacement or a refund for a “lemon,” the consumer has the right to file a civil action in a court of law.
