Did you get a product that doesn’t work or a defective car or truck? You say the owner won’t take it back or give you a refund? Not so fast! You need to know that there is a law protecting consumers from being stuck with a “lemon” called the Nebraska Lemon Law. It’s state legislation that is based on federal regulations prohibiting fraud and deception when it comes to consumer goods.
How do I ditch my lemon?
If you live in Nebraska and you got a vehicle or other merchandise that is a lemon, first you’ll want to make sure you have a warranty. The Lemon Law impacts warranty-covered merchandise only in most cases because this is considered a legal contract between yourself and the manufacturer that guarantees you will be compensated for defective merchandise.
If the manufacturer or seller of the goods refuses to fix it or if you have tried multiple times to get the situation resolved, maybe it’s time to get monetary compensation for your defective item through legal means.
The Nebraska Lemon Law, like Lemon laws in most states, allows you to get compensation for the cost of products and services that did not meet the standards laid out in the warranty.
This is considered a type of “breach of contract” suit, but it can also cross over into consumer fraud and other deceptive practice law, provided the seller or manufacturer knew about the defect in advance of selling it.
