The History of
The Lemon Law

February 19, 2013  |   Florida Lemon Law  

Lemon Law HistoryConsumer's haven't always had the laws they do today to protect them. Our lemon laws are relatively new, popping up only roughly 40 years ago! When you consider how long people have manufactured goods and sold, bartered or traded them with each other, a four decades is little more then a drop in the hat.

Even though each state now has it's own Lemon Laws (Florida included), they were only passed years after the federal government first enacted the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act in 1970 (protection against defective consumer products). Only five years went by before the states started to begin passing their own Lemon Laws, and consumer's in Florida began to feel confident that if they make a purchase, especially one as big as an automobile, that it will work as advertised and be free from defects. And if it isn't, or if the seller or manufacturer used dubious practices to get you to buy something, then you have methods of recourse, especially with the help of a qualified attorney.
