KIMMEL & SILVERMAN, ATTORNEYS AT LAW
Kimmel and Silverman uses the New York Lemon Law and various Federal warranty statutes to provide 100% cost-free legal help to distressed drivers statewide. The Firm has been helping consumers fight for their lemon law rights for more than a decade, and our efforts have been featured on Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, News 4 New York and 'Help Me Howard' on WPIX TV.
The New York Lemon Law applies to new cars and motorcycles, both purchased and leased, which suffer a nonconformity; a defect or condition, which substantially impairs the use, value or safety; that has been addressed a substantial number of times (normally 3-4) by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This nonconformity must first occur within the first 24 months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first. The New York Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year.
It's important to note that even if your car falls outside of the limitations established by the NY Lemon Law, there are still Federal breach of warranty laws which apply. If your car has an original or extended manufacturer's warranty and has a problem that can't be fixed after three repair attempts, chances are we can help you.
The New York Lemon Law can be confusing and is open up to numerous interpretations if you don't understand how it works. If you are driving a defective vehicle and you want to find out if you are entitled to cost-free legal help, feel free to submit a lemon law question online, or fill out our Get Rid Of Your Lemon worksheet for a free case evaluation.
