Many people do not know that the Oregon Lemon Law can help them to get the justice that they deserve when they get stock with a lemon. While most of the time the law is enacted by consumers to get justice when they buy a car or truck, it can be used when you get stock with other big-ticket purchases that are not functioning as they should.
3 Tips for Getting Justice
While the Oregon Lemon Law is in place, it is not automatic. You must initiate the claim to get the recourse you want. The law is not very consumer friendly but there are still protections that you can take advantage of. These 3 tips can help you prepare for getting the justice you need:
1. Keep good records
2. Act quickly
3. Get a lawyer on your side
Keep a log of every phone call that you make, keep all receipts, every email or other information that you have that proves correspondence or contact with the dealership. It is imperative that you can prove your case in court if it needs to go to court.
In Oregon, you are only covered under the lemon law for the first 12 months or 24,000 miles there are some protections after this period but they are much harder to take advantage of.
