Obtaining Civil Penalties In Lemon Law Cases

The Law Offices of René Korper is a consumer protection law firm representing all California clients in lemon law claims. We hold companies responsible when they do not meet their contractual and legal duties to consumers. We have more than 20 years of experience navigating California’s lemon law (the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act) and the federal lemon law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act).

Unknown to many, the California Lemon Law contains some of the strongest consumer protection provisions. By design, the law protects those who purchase or lease cars, trucks, SUVs, campers, RVs, boats and other consumer goods.

The most important feature of the law relates to civil penalties. A civil penalty is a money award in addition to your actual damages and attorney fees. Companies faced with civil penalty threats are more likely to resolve claims quickly and not bully consumers into trial. If the case does go to trial and the jury finds the manufacturer knew better, the jury can award the civil penalty of up to twice the actual damages. Thus, the civil penalty is a punishment for companies who commit willful violations.

Why Are Civil Penalties Good For Your Case?

Having a lemon law with the sting of civil penalties is of great value to our consumer clients. If we prevail at trial, we could receive a civil penalty award of up to twice your actual damages, plus actual damages and attorney fees. In addition, the possibility of a civil penalty is often enough to avoid trial because of the manufacturer’s higher risk.

At The Law Offices of René Korper, we are aggressive in our pursuit of consumer rights claims for clients. We go up against major manufacturers to protect our clients and create positive changes in how these companies treat people.
