How To Build Your Case

For individuals facing defects in a brand new vehicle after investing significant money in buying the car, the task of recovering compensation for the defect may seem overwhelming. They may not even know if they actually have a claim. At the Law Office of Richard A. McNeil, we assist car buyers and consumers in understanding whether or not they have a claim against the manufacturer. It is important that you speak with a skilled lemon law lawyer to understand your rights and options.

North Carolina Lawyer Assembling Documentation And Repair Logs To Build A Solid Case

Solid lemon law cases are built on several critical pieces and documented occurrences. This includes:

  • Any digital photos or digital videos that illustrate your concerns.
  • Repair orders and work orders, showing all of the times the car was taken in for repair, as well as details surrounding the repairs that were made and repairs that were offered.
  • A record of dates the car was taken in and when it was delivered back to you, showing the duration of time it was in the shop.This is sometimes referred to as the dates "in" and "out" of the dealership.
  • A list and record of parts and components that were replaced and why they were replaced
  • Documentation of all abnormalities, including leaks and other causes for concern
  • Documentation of all correspondence and emails with the dealership, manufacturers or other professional opinions on the vehicle
  • Documentation of all purchase agreements and warranties

We are equipped with the experience and understanding of the lemon laws to use the documentation provided to pursue compensation in your lemon law claim. Attorney Richard A. McNeil focuses his practice solely on this area and the protection of consumers.

Most importantly, the lemon laws contain "fee-shifting provisions," meaning that the manufacturer can be responsible for our attorney fees. Because of this, we charge you nothing up front or out of pocket. The only way in which our firm is paid is if we recover on your claim. If for any reason, we are unable to recover on your claim, you are still not responsible to us for anything!
