Motorcycles Can Be Lemons Too
Your Bike Should Be Designed to Last
Did you expect a beautiful, high-performance bike and instead found out that you had purchased a constantly broken piece of junk? Many two-wheeled vehicles are covered under motorcycle lemon law. To find out whether your bike is covered, call my firm. I can help you sort through the law and determine whether you have a case.
Free Consultations for Every Case
Make sure you are aware of the time limitations you have to file a complaint. These requirements vary state by state, and are listed on your DMV website. Alternatively, you can contact my firm to find out what information you will need in order to pursue your claim.
For your convenience, I have provided California, Texas, and Louisiana's time restrictions:
- In California, you are covered for 18 months after your date of purchase, or when your vehicle is within the warranty. You must file within these time limits.
- In Louisiana, you are covered throughout the warranty period, or for 1 year from date of purchase. You must file within these time limits.
- In Texas, you are covered throughout the warranty period, or for 1 year from date of purchase. After the first year of purchase, you must file within the first 6 months.
Avoid Purchasing a Lemon
When you are purchasing a motorcycle, there are a few steps you can take to try and prevent the purchase of a lemon. Make sure you search the VIN number of a used vehicle. This should give you a list of the motorcycle's previous accidents and history. If you can, have the bike evaluated by a mechanic you trust, to make sure you aren't going to encounter any unfortunate surprises.
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you still fall victim to the purchase of a lemon. When this happens, contact my firm. I can help you protect your rights.
