    Frequently Asked Questions

    In some limited instances, the manufacturer may repurchase the vehicle. In most cases, a cash award will be the remedy.  Typically [80%] recovery is anywhere 5% to 15% of the purchase price. The range depends on the number of repairs, nature of the repairs. mileage on the vehicle and days out of service. In some instances, the damages will exceed 15% due to the extent of the defect, circumstances and days out of service.

    The law provides that if the buyer proves a manufacturing defect with vehicle that the manufacturer is liable for the buyers’ attorney fees. Part of our investigation and evaluation process is to identify manufacturing defects. When we proceed, we are confident we can prove a manufacturing defect. Thus, we seek our attorney fees from the manufacturer. If a settlement can be reached, the fees will be part of the settlement agreement. If the case goes to trial, the fees will be part of a verdict or order. Either way, you are not required to pre-pay fees, pay a retainer or pay fees in the event we fail to make a recovery on your behalf.

    Louisiana laws that address motor vehicle warranties include: La.R.S. 51:1941, et seq. (“Louisiana Lemon Law”), La.C.C.Art. 2520, et seq. (Redhibition), 15 U.S.C. 2301, et seq. (“Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act”), Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and La.R.S. 51:1401, et seq. (Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act).

    It shall be presumed that a reasonable number of attempts have been undertaken to conform a motor vehicle to the applicable express warranties if the vehicle is out of service by reason of repair for a cumulative total of forty-five or more calendar days or the same nonconformity has been subject to repair four or more times by the manufacturer, its agent, or its authorized dealer within the warranty term or during a period of one year following the date of the original delivery of the motor vehicle to the consumer, whichever is the earlier date.

    “Nonconformity” means any specific or generic defect or malfunction, or any defect or condition which substantially impairs the use, market value or both of a motor vehicle.”

    The seller warrants the buyer against redhibitory defects, or vices, in the thing sold. A defect is redhibitory when it renders the thing useless, or its use so inconvenient that it must be presumed that a buyer would not have bought the thing had he known of the defect. The existence of such a defect gives a buyer the right to obtain rescission of the sale. A defect is redhibitory also when, without rendering the thing totally useless, it diminishes its usefulness or its value so that it must be presumed that a buyer would still have bought it but for a lesser price. The existence of such a defect limits the right of a buyer to a reduction of the price. NOTE: There are no minimum number of repairs nor is their a minimum number of days out of service. Redhibition simply requires that the vehicle possess a defect at the time of sale that rendered it useless or so inconvenient a reasonable buyer would not have bought the vehicle. 

    The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a United States federal law (15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq.) that governs warranties on consumer products. The law does not require any product to have a warranty (it may be sold “as is”), but if it does have a warranty, the warranty must comply with this law. The law was created to fix problems as a result of manufacturers using disclaimers on warranties in an unfair or misleading manner and provides consumers with remedies for violation of express and implied warranties.

    Any person who suffers any ascertainable loss of money or movable property, corporeal or incorporeal, as a result of the use or employment by another person of an unfair or deceptive method, act, or practice declared unlawful by R.S. 51:1405, may bring an action individually but not in a representative capacity to recover actual damages. If the court finds the unfair or deceptive method, act, or practice was knowingly used, after being put on notice by the attorney general, the court shall award three times the actual damages sustained. In the event that damages are awarded under this Section, the court shall award to the person bringing such action reasonable attorney fees and costs. Upon a finding by the court that an action under this Section was groundless and brought in bad faith or for purposes of harassment, the court may award to the defendant reasonable attorney fees and costs.

    • I was plagued by a continuous electrical problem on my truck. Brought it to two different dealerships multiple times to no avail. In frustration I turned to Mr Duck's firm and was contacted by Jesse who stayed in contact with me and helped me navigate the lemon law process. I never had a need to explore it before. One time I had questions about some specifics and received a call from Kevin who talked to me for 45 minutes answering all of my questions and explained what to expect. My settlement was far more than I anticipated and even finally got my truck satisfactorily repaired! Highly recommend this firm if you get to the point of having nowhere else to turn.
