Trial Victories in San Diego: Although the overwhelming majority of our firm’s Lemon Law cases settle short of trial, including hundreds of favorable settlements for San Diego consumers, our attorneys have significant trial experience and are ready to try cases when the manufacturers are unwilling to make a reasonable offer to settle.
Lozano vs. BMW of North America, LLC (San Diego Superior Court): The Lozano trial involved a failure of a BMW 1 Series’ power windows to function properly. Because the problem was intermittent and BMW saw the defect as insubstantial, BMW refused to make any reasonable offers to settle through the course of litigation. The matter went to trial in San Diego Superior Court before Judge Judith Hayes. Bickel Law Firm attorneys Brian Bickel and Erika Kavicky tried the case against BMW’s counsel, the Lehrman Law Group, based out of Los Angeles. After a very quick deliberation, the San Diego jury rendered a verdict in Mr. Lozano’s favor, not only awarding a statutory buy-back of his BMW but also levying the maximum allowable civil penalty, which in this case exceeded $70,000, against BMW for its willful failure to comply with the California Lemon Law.
Cauchon vs. Forest River, Inc. (San Diego Superior Court): The Cauchon trial involved a motorhome that suffered a series to defects to its air conditioning, leveling jacks, and electrical system, among other problems. The matter was tried by Attorney Brian J. Bickel against the San Diego branch of Musick Peeler & Garrett, a firm of over one hundred attorneys that defended Forest River, Inc. Notwithstanding the resources of Musick Peeler and Forest River, a subsidiary of Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, the jury found in the Cauchons’ favor. The verdict was for a full repurchase of the Cauchons’ motorhome and over $30,000 in additional civil penalty damages for Forest River’s willful failure to follow its obligations under the Song-Beverly Act.

About California Lemon Law
California’s Lemon Law is one of the most effective lemon laws in the nation. Unlike many other states, California does not require a specific number of repair visits before a consumer can file a claim. Furthermore, the California Lemon Law does not limit its relief to consumers who experience defects within set mileage or time periods. In most situations, if a car is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, you will be able to initiate a Lemon Law claim provided that the dealer and manufacturer have been given a reasonable number of opportunities to repair your car.
