Many consumers who are haunted by potential joblessness and rising mortgage interest rates, and who are already paying dearly at the grocery store and at the gas pump, are facing what could be the final straw: discovering that they own a 'lemon' car, SUV, or truck
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) June 13, 2008
Last Friday was rife with bad news for the U.S. economy: May's 5.5 percent unemployment rate represented the largest one-month uptick since 1986, the Dow Jones plummeted nearly 400 points, and oil prices spiked, with the national gas price average jumping to over $4 per gallon. Yet, according to Lemon Law attorney Sergei Lemberg (http://www.LemonJustice.com), this headline-making news is just the tip of the iceberg of economic woes facing consumers.
"Many consumers who are haunted by potential joblessness and rising mortgage interest rates, and who are already paying dearly at the grocery store and at the gas pump, are facing what could be the final straw: discovering that they own a 'lemon' car, SUV, or truck," Lemberg said.
In hard economic times, a defective vehicle only exacerbates a bad situation, and Lemberg is seeing a surge in new clients. "A few years ago during the housing equity boom, people could afford to leave one car in the shop while driving another, rent a car while theirs was being repaired, or get rid of a lemon and buy a new car," he said. "That simply isn't the case today."
Indeed, now that everyone is feeling the pinch, lemon car owners need every protection the law affords them. "Car defects hurt people the most when there's an economic downturn," said Lemberg. "When your paycheck depends upon reliable transportation, a lemon can mean the difference between drowning and staying afloat."
Lemberg takes pride in his firm's ability to help consumers get the compensation they deserve, thereby preventing the further marginalization of people who are barely making it. "We've been able to successfully negotiate settlements with vehicle manufacturers that include buybacks, full refunds, extended service contracts, and monetary awards for our clients' time and inconvenience," he said.
That's a lifeboat that every consumer with a lemon can climb aboard.
