A semi-truck is a major investment that no one would ever make if they didn't expect it to eventually pay for itself. Of course, if the truck never operates properly, the buyer has no chance of making a return on the investment.
If you purchased or leased a semi truck that doesn't work or is always in the shop for repairs, you may be able to make a claim under Wisconsin Lemon Law. Call the Law Offices of Vince P.

Is your Semi Truck a Lemon?
Wisconsin Lemon Law covers the first year after you purchase or lease a new semi truck. Claims usually involve:
- Four Repairs for the Same Problem: If your semi truck needs work four times for the same problem within one year of purchase or lease and the problem continues, the manufacturer has a duty to replace your vehicle or give you a refund of the full purchase price.
- 30 Days or More Out of Service: If your truck is out of service for 30 days during the first year after delivery, you are entitled to a replacement truck or a full refund. Thirty days is not limited to only days that your truck is in the repair shop.
- Failure to Repair a Problem: If you brought your truck in to be fixed at least once during the first year, and the problem continued after the first year you can recover damages.
If you notify the manufacturer that you qualify for Lemon Law relief, the manufacturer has a legal obligation to either give you a refund or a replacement vehicle. If the manufacturer refuses, you can file a lawsuit under the Wisconsin Lemon Law and recover double damages, plus attorneys' fees.
If you're thinking of making a claim, you can strengthen your case immensely by keeping accurate, detailed records about your vehicle's problems and the results you get when you try to have those problems fixed.
The best way to know for sure if your truck qualifies as a lemon is to tell your story to a Lemon Law attorney. Call 414-914-2803 or contact our offices online for a free consultation with attorney Vince Megna.
