If you live in Wilkes Barre or the surrounding areas of Northeastern Pennsylvania, we invite you to join us for a free lemon law and car buying seminar featuring K&S Partner Craig Kimmel. The Law Clinic will take place Wednesday, February 21st at 7pm at Boscov’s Department Store, 15 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre. The event will be hosted by Jeff Chirico, consumer reporter for WBRE TV, and will be held in the fourth floor auditorium.
Under State PA Lemon Laws and Federal Laws, consumers are entitled to seek recourse from automobile manufacturers if their cars are in the shop for the same problems three or more times under original or extended warranty, or if their car is in the shop thirty or more days within the first year. This recourse can include a new car or full or partial refund. In addition, the laws provide consumers with free legal representation as they battle against the billion-dollar automobile manufacturers. The seminar will outline consumers’ rights. Topics to be discussed include the definition of a lemon and steps to file a lemon law claim.
In addition to outlining the laws, car-buying tips will also be discussed. While there are no surefire ways to prevent the sale of lemons, there are a few ways consumers can protect themselves. Mr. Kimmel will share five rules to remember when buying a new or used car.
Admission is free but reservations are suggested. To reserve your space, call 1-800-LEMON-LAW ext. 131.
