Bergen County Lemon Law Attorney

Mar 15, 2017

Bergen County, the most populous county in New Jersey, has a lot to recommend it. In addition to being an important place in American history, it is full of cultural, environmental, recreational and natural attractions. Besides several Revolutionary War sites, the county has a professional theatre (The Company), a zoo, a number of museums and galleries, an observatory, miles and miles of beautiful trails for biking and hiking, farmers’ markets full of luscious local produce, golf courses, arcades, gaming centers, a Medieval tournament facility, and a lovely memorial butterfly garden. Clearly, Bergen County is full of attractions, but for most residents and visitors a working car is necessary to get to them.

For most of us, having an undependable or dangerous vehicle makes it impossible to enjoy family outings, not to mention to do our daily commuting or shopping chores. If you have a relatively new automobile that has been giving you trouble and has been unsuccessfully repaired a number of times, you are probably dealing with a “lemon.” The dealer of your leased or purchased car must have attempted to repair it at least three times without success for it to be considered a lemon, except when the defect is liable to cause injuries or death, in which case the dealer only gets only one chance to make a successful repair. Fortunately, if you are located in Bergen County, or any other part of New Jersey or Pennsylvania, you have easy access to the services of Timothy Abeel, a highly accomplished Lemon Law attorney with an extremely high rate of substantial settlements and verdicts.

When the Lemon Law Applies in Bergen County

It should be noted that to qualify for Lemon Law a defect must substantially impair the use, value or safety of the vehicle. To be considered a lemon, the car defect must occur within 2 years or 24,000 miles of usage after lease or purchase, or have been unusable for 20 (not necessarily consecutive) days. There is a four-year time limit from the date of the third repair attempt for you to officially file a claim under New Jersey Lemon Law.
