Car Defect Claims, Recalls & More
In the state of Florida having a vehicle is pretty much a necessity these days. And while many larger cities have a far better system of public transportation than in years past, having things so spread out, and with the intense summer sun, a car is just leaps and bounds more efficient and honestly, in Florida, the cost of driving is far lower than it is in other states – plus with one of the most robust used car markets in the country, most individuals can drive a vehicle only a year or two old that works well, and appeals to their needs. However, according to Mr. Steven Veinger, long since considered to be the top lemon law lawyer Miami has to offer, with that robust used car market also comes quite a few individuals who are looking to scam the system and have successfully gotten broken, damaged, “lemons” into used car dealerships for great prices and impeccable aesthetic appearance. A lemon is considered a vehicle that simply doesn’t work due to some, usually mechanical, issue that just will not be fixed. Unfortunately, that car might have severe engine issues, transmission problems, unsafe suspension and much worse – making it a hazard to keep on the road.
The government instituted something known as lemon law, in order to protect consumers against these types of issues and help them to not “get got”, by unscrupulous car dealers and car manufacturers. And as the top lemon law lawyer Miami attorney Steven Veinger has been able to help some of South Beach’s elite to file lemon law claims and have their cars paid for or repairs fixed – even on cars costing upwards of $100,000 – Benzes to Ferraris, Aston Martins, and way more. Having helped car owners all over Florida Mr. Veinger is also considered to be the top lemon law lawyer Boca Raton residents have called upon for such cases. With a track record so extensive you’d think he would be able to handle some everyday cars without a problem. First of all the biggest issue that is standing in the way of filing a lemon law claim is the fact that lemon law only covers brand new cars, and therefore, used cars, sold from an independent dealership will simply not cut it – by law.
While a lot of people’s dreams might be dashed right there, assuming they are simply out of a car and out of the money, being the top lemon law lawyer Miami has to offer, Mr. Veinger has been able to use his knowledge of dealerships and manufacturers and what they tend to fear most, to assist owners of used cars just the same. The fact is that there is a simple need to remove unsafe vehicles from the road – the same reason that we have to have our cars inspected for safety and function every year. However, in addition this is the primary reasoning for auto recalls as this is one way to ensure the safety of our highways – considering that traffic crashes are the number one killer of Americans under age 34. A key method for improving highway safety is through auto recalls and the recall of defective vehicle equipment that leads to far more accidents.
The fact of the matter is that when it comes to theFederal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, there are a set minimum performance requirement for those parts of the vehicle that most affect its safe operation (brakes, tires, lighting) or that protect drivers and passengers from death or serious injury in the event of a crash (air bags, safety belts, child restraints, energy absorbing steering columns, motorcycle helmets) and are applicable to all vehicles and equipment manufactured or imported for sale in the United States (including the territories) certified for use on public roads and highways. A recall becomes necessary:
· When the car or any of its parts does not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
· Or when there is a safety related defect in the vehicle or equipment.
While this was meant to be the case, by law, rarely was it always followed – if the manufacturers deemed it to be too much of a “hassle” or not as big of a safety issue – despite dealing with things like the breaks or seatbelts. As the top lemon law lawyer Boca Raton residents rely on, Mr. Veinger has dealt with much of Boca’s elderly population, and as such, he has been able to see how dealers and manufacturers treat those from a certain status and certain level of affluence. Often, while those in Miami’s inner cities might complain of issues with their cars they fall on deaf ears, but once the top lemon law lawyer Boca Raton has to offer, and a legion of retired policemen, lawyers, doctors, judges and more, begin to complain about their Turbo Porsche’s slipping breaks, things were often able to move. And eventually, others took notice and would also file lawsuits for safety related defects, as often, even used cars might still be covered under warranties, extended service plans, and in addition, with the internet becoming a popular place for car owners to gather – many manufacturers who would ignore customer pleas for certain recalls, would eventually be hit with class action suits – until they were either found in violation of the 1966 National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, or they chose to settle with the individuals who owned their cars.
