How do lemon lawyers get paid if I sue the car dealer or manufacturer?

Hiring an attorney can be expensive, how do lemon lawyers get paid if I sue the car dealer or manufacturer?

Although the news media paints the picture that we live in a “sue happy” society.  In reality, most families are hard working people who never have the expectation of using the court system to help right a wrong or injustice in their lives.

The most common misconception is that anything that involves hiring an attorney is going to be cost prohibitive or be too expensive.  In fact, most car dealers and vehicle manufacturers want you to believe that.  Luckily, in the case of most lemon law situations, that doesn’t always have to be the case.

Texas and applicable federal consumer protection laws provide a fee shifting provision that requires the car manufacturer or dealer to pay for your attorney fees.  In certain situations (especially when the car owner has taken the vehicle in four times for the same defect) where the attorney fee shifting provision is not triggered, the lemon law attorney you hire can help you negotiate the attorney fees built into your settlement so that you do not have to pay for those fees.
