New York Car Accident Lawyers

Wingate, Russotti & Shapiro, New York Car Accident Lawyers, have successfully represented 1000's of people injured in automobile accidents and traffic collisions. One such case involved a $2.5 million recovery for a 57 year-old man who was struck by a car while walking his dog on the side of a roadway. He suffered a fractured ankle, ruptured spleen, internal bleeding and an aggravation of a long standing kidney insufficiency. In another case we recovered $1 million for an 18 year old student who was injured when a car driven by his friend drove off the road and hit a tree. His injuries consisted of fractures of his femur, facial bones and ribs which required several operations. This experience has resulted in giving us the legal expertise and financial resources to handle our clients' cases in the most effective manner. We have the dedication and commitment to making sure we do everything possible to achieve the maximum results in each client's case.

Preliminary reports for 2002 indicate that close to 3,000,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents and another 42,850 people were killed, making auto accidents the leading cause of injury and death in the United States. These NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) reports are very alarming. Even more alarming is that in 40% of those traffic accident fatalities alcohol was a contributing factor and 63% were caused from improper use of seatbelts. The reports also show that traffic fatalities in New York rose 6% in 2002 to 1,548.

If you drive or travel in an automobile, odds are you will be involved in at least one automobile accident in your lifetime. Protect yourself by observing the rules of the road and also protect yourself against uninsured and underinsured motorists by purchasing the appropriate insurance coverage. Keep in mind that you purchase liability insurance in case you injure or cause property damage to someone else, but you carry uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance coverage to protect yourself. Statistics show that more than 15% of the nation's driving population is uninsured.

If you have been involved in an automobile accident or traffic collision you may be entitled to recovery of damages by the negligent party's insurance company and/or by your own if the negligent driver was uninsured or underinsured. Never proceed with a negligence claim without first obtaining legal advice. An attorney experienced in the practice of personal injury law knows the court system, can cut through insurance company red tape, and will make sure you are justly compensated for all current and future damages.

Our firm has extensive experience in handling all types of New York motor vehicle accidents. We promptly and thoroughly investigate each case to assess liability and determine fault. We work with experienced investigators to obtain photographs, witness statements and other necessary investigation. Our attorneys have an excellent understanding of the intricacies of New York's No-Fault Law as well as Underinsurance and Uninsured Motorist Coverage issues.

Kentucky Lemon Cars Attorneys Lawyers

You don't have to suffer with recalls and warranty denials.  You can get a refund, upgrade or cash settlement if you prove that your car was returned four times for the same substantial defect or that your car was out of service for 30 days.  This gives you the presumption that your car is a lemon.  Download your lemon auto manual, which shows you how to document your case.  Manufacturers often refuse claims until you have a lawyer and properly prepare a claim.

Lemon Car cases are based on the written and unwritten that all manufacturers offer on automobiles. 

Manufacturers often try to avoid warranty claims by claiming that cars are too old or that defects do not affect the drive train or that you have to accept mediation.  Warranty laws state that defects only have to effect the operation, safety, performance or value of a vehicle.   Manufacturers and the BBB may try to force you into mediation where the Manufacturer's own employees judge your case but in Kentucky you are not required to accept mediation!

Used Lemon Car Laws Kentucky

Kentucky is a dumping ground for repurchased lemon autos.  Other states have used car laws that require the dealer to disclose if you are being sold a lemon auto that the car manufacturer bought back. In Kentucky the used "demo" on the used car is often  a lemon auto that the car manufacturer had to buy back.  Many times these used autos are sold as if they were new with new car warranties. 

Car manufacturers launder out of state lemon autos by dumping them in Kentucky and passing them off demos or executive cars, instead of repurchased lemon used cars.  In California Ford and other manufacturers were sued for millions for this fraud.  However Kentucky and other states have weak disclosure laws.  There are ways of telling if you have been taken advantage of with a Carfax report. 

Some lawsuits can be made against used auto dealers.  Cars with flood damage,  rebuilt wrecks or autos with rolled back odometers can subject an automobile dealer to heavy damages.  Some deceptive practices at used auto lots include: 

1)   Free Exchanges you get to exchange one used lemon car for another used lemon auto from the lot. What you should be given that auto is your money back. 

2)    50/50 Guarantee the warranty the used car lot gives is that they will pay 1/2 of the auto repairs at their facility.  Of course the repair cost is at least double at their garage.

3)    As/is In Kentucky most used autos are sold as is.  This allows the car dealer to avoid any responsibility for your auto.  "As is" does not protect the auto dealer from fraud.  .

4)   Dealer Warranties  The used auto lot may sell a "car warranty"  from an insurance company or from the auto dealer himself.  These used car warranties are worthless.  Limitations often include high deductibles,  a car warranty that will only pay 1/2 of the auto repairs, that the auto warranty doesn't cover "normal wear" or that the car warranty will only pay up to 500 dollars of repair.   The manufacturer's warranty normally completely covers your repairs.


Lemon Car Car Free Checks

A car fax check will help you find out if a car has a history of being a lemon auto it will normally show you

  • If your lemon auto has an Odometer rolled back you are allowed legal damages of 3 times your car's purchase price plus attorney fees.  A lemon auto title check shows you if your car was rolled back. 
  • If your lemon auto was in an accident a lemon auto title check will show the car's prior insurance claims
  • If your lemon auto was flood damaged if the car was sold at an auction, or if the car  has a salvage title it will appear in a lemon auto title check.
  • If your lemon auto was a one owner leased car or a rental car, and when each car owner bought and sold it will be in a lemon auto title check.
  • When the car dealer took delivery (you might use this against them when haggling over the price) it will be in a lemon auto title check.
  • It your lemon auto was bought back by the car manufacturer it will be in a lemon auto title check.

Attorneys Lemon Car Car Warranty

Never Leave The Car Dealership Warranty Repair Facility without a copy of your lemon auto's work orders.  Make certain that you document your car warranty complaint on the car records for your attorney. A complete record of your auto's warranty  history is important to win any lemon auto case.  Documenting the warranty work prevents the auto manufacturer from claiming several warranty repairs as one repair or claiming that you never complained about a specific lemon auto problem which is common practice.  You must document your lemon auto case. 

>Often automobile service writers will "accidentally" fails to include the very lemon auto defect that you need them to list on your service records.   To avoid warranty claims car manufacturers instruct the dealers to not create records if you just came in and didn't get repaired! Always get a copy and keep a copy of your automobile's service record.  You may not be able to prove your lemon auto case later if your auto's service record fails to document any problem. 

You have to make certain that the auto service records clearly shows that you have repeatedly come back to the service department for recurring problems.  A lemon auto case can also be proven if you show that the car in general is defective.  You can use your service record to show that a pattern of many lemon auto defects exist in your car.  By adding your own comments to the service writer's report you insure a record of your defective problems with your lemon

The hardest part for an attorney in  lemon auto cases is documenting the car repairs.  The auto manufacturer may claim that you are causing the warranty problem or misusing the car.  In an effort to avoid warranty liability the auto manufacturer may claim that optional auto equipment violates the car warranty or that non dealer servicing violates your auto warranty.  Making such claims is a direct violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and may allow you increased lemon auto case damages. 

Kentucky Dealers, Lemon, Cars, Warranty

When you return your lemon auto to the Kentucky dealer for warranty work demand your rights-You paid a lot for that Lemon Carmobile...so don't be afraid to go over anyone's head at the dealership if your Lemon Carmobile isn't documented and repaired properly.  Part of the price of that lemon automobile is  warranty service.  Dealership repairs must be made right, on time and take less than 30 days or 4 attempts.  If not the auto manufacturer owes you a refund for your car.  You pay dealers and manufacturers for the right to get a refund as part of the purchase price, you should get your moneys worth.  

In Kentucky mediation by yourself or suing car dealers by yourself normally guarantees failure.  Mediation is used as a stall tactic to take up time in hopes that you will go away.  It is unfair because auto manufacturers pay the salaries of mediators who hand down biased opinions.   The laws of some states require you mediation before you sue the car manufacturer.   Intermittent problems where the car won’t function today and will tomorrow are the hardest for your dealer to fix and the hardest to prove.  Normally:

1) The dealership didn't manufacture the defective automobiles and he didn’t design it.  Under Kentucky law he is not primarily responsible unless he knew of the defect, concealed it, or misrepresented it. However he is responsible under the Federal law. 

2) Don't threaten of insult the automobile dealer he didn't manufacture the car and he didn't design it.  Dealers work with you to repair your defective automobile according to the manufacturers warranty and you may need him on your side in court.

3) Dealers earn more money if you pay for the repair.  Don't expect the dealer to handle your lemon auto case.  Your attorney does.  If repairs wont cure the defective auto sue the automobile manufacturer and use an attorney that knows what he is doing. Mediation is a stall tactic.

4) Document the case with the Dealers records.  Keep copies of your warranty and all letters and dealership repair work.  Never leave car dealers without a copy of your work order.  Document whom you talked to at the dealership and send certified letters if you ever send a letter.  Keep records of all your complaints and your problems with the car. 

5) Allow the automobile dealership to make all repairs under warranty and allow dealers every chance to fix defects under warranty this will be your proof later if your car is a lemon.  Your dealer may fix it better than it was when it was manufactured.  The cost is nothing and it documents that it is a lemon if the dealership cant fix the defective automobile.  You dealership is happy to earn fees from the manufacturer for doing covered warranty repairs but they are happier if you pay for it so don't expect auto dealers to help you make a lemon auto claim.

6) Don’t claim dealer fraud if there was none.  Claiming fraud will rarely help your case if you are suing on the warranty.  Remember that you are here to recover for your defective car from the manufacturer.  You are not here to insult your Kentucky Dealer who is on your side and who wants to do the repairs to the defective automobile under your warrantys. 

7) The BBB and lemon auto consumer groups aren't attorneys.  They often are supported and paid for by dealers and manufacturers.   Don't use them as if they were attorneys or try to be your own attorney. 

Kentucky Lemon, Car, Warranties, Defective

If you have a defective lemon auto you don't have to suffer in silence.  In a lemon auto case you are required to prove that the defective car was returned four times to the manufacturer and that the car is still defective.  This gives you the presumption under Kentucky law that the vehicle is a defective lemon auto.  Download your lemon auto manual, which will show you how to document your lemon auto case.  Car manufacturers often refuse lemon auto claims until you get an attorney!  However, the Kentucky statute allows you a full refund for your defective lemon auto under the warranties minus the mileage for your driving.

Lemon Car cases are based on the express and implied warranties that car manufacturer offers for all new cars that they sell.  If after four attempts to repair the auto the car manufacturer cannot repair the defective condition the car is presumed to be a defective lemon auto.   Safety defects only require 2 repairs and other states may only require 3 returns instead of 4.  Lemon auto manufacturers often try to avoid paying for defective lemon autos by claiming that warranty claims are too old or that defective parts or problems don't involve the drive train or that you have to accept mediation.  Kentucky's lemon auto law and most states only require that defective conditions only have to effect the operation, safety or value of a car.

Kentucky Lemon Car Mediation Information

The Federal Trade Commission has determined that no auto manufacturer  has in place a "mediation program" which complies with Federal minimum  standards. What this means is that the FTC has found that the lemon auto mediation programs are unfair to consumers and that these lemon auto mediations are designed to fail to inform you or give you what the law requires. 

The Kentucky Mediation statute says that either the lemon auto buyer or the car manufacturer can ask for mediation.  Under systems like the BBB the car manufacturer hires the mediator.  This can become a stall or kangaroo court where the mediator is paid by the car manufacturer to hand down the decision the auto manufacturer determines.  Lemon auto mediators are not judges and mediation is not a trial.  However, if you agree to mediation the decision may be binding and you may have signed away your right to a full refund for the lemon auto.  

Mediation is not always required to file a car warranty case in Kentucky.  At the mediation stage you should consult an attorney.  Often the auto manufacturer is only hoping that after time that you will go away in frustration of mediation.   Mediators and mediation rarely recommends a full refund of the auto's purchase price from the manufacturer.   

Lemon Car Car Warranty Kentucky

Don't be fooled -The car manufacturer or dealer may claim that you are causing the defect. This is a common tactic when the car dealership cannot fix the auto or the auto manufacturer has no way repair the car's defective condition and wants to avoid a refund. Your problem may be common.  Ask about the Technical Service Bulletins. Your situation may not be as unique as the automobile dealership represents.

To obtain a car history on your auto, click car history
To obtain your car's value click 
auto value.

To find out if technical repair bulletins or recall have been issued for your vehicle, click Warranty records.

Why negotiate a car warranty claim yourself for free when you can have an attorney do it for you at little or no cost?  Never negotiate your own lemon auto case.  The manufacturer will rarely pay you fully unless you are represented by a lawyer. 

Car Recalls Lemon Cars Kentucky

ASK ABOUT Car Recalls and TSBs - Do you want to know about car recalls and the TSB's on your specific car?   Car recalls and TSB(Technical Service Bulletins) are instructions from the manufacturer that alert car dealerships about auto defects or car repairs in certain models. However, car dealerships don't normally tell customers about car recalls or TSBs. Ask the car dealership to write your auto recall or TSB request on the repair order even if told no recall or car TSBs exist for car's problem.

Lemon Car recalls are only done if your car was defective.  Often your auto dealer can easily fix the car.  However, some lemon auto defects can't be repaired.  If all of the auto manufacturer's transmissions are defective recalling and replacing a defective car transmission with another defectively manufactured auto transmission won't cure a lemon car.  It isn't the dealers fault if the auto manufacturer designs or if the car manufacturer recalls your car.  In a case like that you need to recall and return the car to the sender.  

Use car recall and TSB car records to document how your lemon auto can't be repaired and how you gave the car manufacturer every chance to repair it. 

 If automobile repairs won't cure a recalled auto problem you need experienced legal help.  You need help an attorney that knows car recalls and lemon auto cases.   Never mediate a car warranty yourself when the auto manufacturer is supposed to pay for your legal fees.

Lemon Cars Dealerships Unfair Tactics

These are just some scams and unfair tactics dealerships use.

1) Unhorsing Dealership sold your trade in car.  Now you have to take our lemon auto or the Dealership has a different lemon auto for you.  While you are waiting on financing a good deal they sell your trade in (or claim to).  Then your financing fails and you are forced to but a different lemon auto (you have to buy what is a lemon just to get a way to work). 

2) The "Window Etching" Dealership Scam  Dealership charges you for etching your car's serial number on windows no value to you if you keep the car insured.

3) The "Forced Warranty" and "Forced Credit Life Insurance" Dealership Scams.  You cant be required to buy a warranty to finance a car but Dealerships tell your that to sell you these extra money makers


5)  The "Additional Dealership Markup or Dealership Prep Scam (ADM) and MSRP Scam" Dealership simply adds charges for work that was already required or that costs them nothing.


7) The "Leasing Is Better Than Buying" Dealership Scam  The big lie Leasing is more expensive not less. 


8) "We'll Payoff Your Loan OR Lease No Matter How Much You Still Owe!!!"  Other Dealership lies just to get you in with bait and switch tactics to lemon autos and deals.

9) The "Spot Delivery Scam"  often called OOOPS the financing fell through you have to return the car.  Often combined with unhorsing (see #1) to force you to buy a lemon auto from Dealership lots.  

10) The "Disappearing Rebate" Scam  and  The Deposit Check Scam   The dealership forgets to apply your rebate or deposit check to the deal and pockets it.  Often an excellent class action suit against the dealership if you had it done to you then others had it done to them.

Lemon Car Laws Lemon Cars

We normally only think of the damages in a lemon auto case as being limited to the refund of the price of the car.  However under product liability and UCC law if persons are injured they can recover their injuries to property or to themselves this can include medical costs pain and suffering and loss of income.  

Different state laws have different rules but the items you can collect for may include Taxes, title fees, license fees, registration fees, finance charges, insurance premiums, transportation charges,  Dealer preparation and added options such as rust-proofing and fabric protection an other additions, extended warranties and service contracts.  

Whether or not you collect depends on how you settle your law case but generally an auto manufacturer will not just hand over a check unless you are represented by a qualified lawyer.   When you first sit down with your attorney you need to have these records that show what your car has actually cost you.   To collect and to have a well pleaded law complaint you need to document your damages so that you can collect for them.  Here is a well thought out form for calculating your recovery for Lemon Carmobiles.

Lemon Cars Car Secret Warranty

Many of your autos warranties and guaranties are secret.  Often the only way to know about these secret warranties to discover the laws or technical service bulletins that are secretly given to auto dealers.  Some auto defects may kill you, damage the autos value or make your auto unusable.  

Lemon Car lawsuits are based on automobile warranties and claims for defects in the design and manufacture of the automobile.  However many auto warranties remain in force long after 36,000 miles.   Every new and even most used autos have automobile warranties that can be enforced in Court.  All auto manufacturers warranty an auto against defects in manufacture and as performing in the normal and customary manner for which it is designed.  Under the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act you don't need to have original automobile equipment installed or have the auto dealer do the maintenance on your automobile to maintain your warranty unless the autos maintenance is done for free. 

Just because you received an automobile warranty for 36,000 miles doesn't mean that your auto warranty wasn't much longer under some other warranty clause.  For example your autos emission equipment warranty is for 100,000 miles under federal law that requires the auto manufacturer to warranty it for that length of time. Carmotive seatbelts and airbags have a lifetime warranty.  However an automobile warranty may not correct defects that were caused by poor design or defective parts.  Often repairing a lemon auto under a warranty just can't solve the problem.  Often the only solution is to get a full refund of the purchase price of your lemon auto.  This is what the Lemon Car Laws do in each state.  Kentucky's Lemon Carmobile Law and the laws of other states give you the right to a full refund of the purchase price of your car simply by filing a claim to recover the money.  We show you how to get your money back when you are stuck with a lemon automobile.  Your court costs and part of your lawyers fees are also allowed under law.
