How Virginia's Lemon Law Works

You may be eligible for relief under the lemon law if one or more of these conditions are true:

  • Your vehicle has been in the shop for 30 or more days in the first 18 months after it was titled to you.
  • The dealer attempted to repair a dangerous condition two or more times.
  • The dealer attempted to repair a nondangerous condition three or more times.

The lemon law applies only to noncommercial vehicles.

Our attorneys can evaluate your situation and take action to recoup all or a portion of:

  • The cost of your vehicle
  • The costs of your repairs beyond those covered by your warranty
  • Your car insurance premiums

Attorney's Fees Paid

When we succeed on your behalf, the car dealer must pay your attorney's fees. This makes pursuing a lemon law claim attractive if your case qualifies under the Virginia Motor Vehicle Warranty Enforcement Act.

When a car dealer sells you a lemon, it can feel like you are a victim of fraud. You do not have to suffer the loss of thousands of your hard-earned dollars. Our team will fight to recover your financial losses.
