I recent won and was awarded a vehicle replacement in BBB Lemon law arbitration very easily, but was not awarded damages, should i sue?

More details to this question:
My Lawyer was unfortunately very weak and did not prepare in anticipation of me wanting to not only get a vehicle replacement, but also to get reimbursed for repair costs (car was $115k, additional repairs were $35k). However, we did easily win the case we did make despite inadaquacies. I have piles and piles of evidence, and am wondering what the cost would be to go ahead and reject the decision and sue. Case again, is very strong, can justify $50k in damages for repairs etc.

As a general rule, you go to arbitration instead of court. Unless the arbitration agreement allows you to reject it and sue, you are stuck with the arbitration award.

Consumer Law
Most--but not all--businesses act ethically and honestly. If a company fails to honor a product's warranty, or is violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or refuses to replace a defective product under state lemon laws, you may need a strong advocate on your side. An attorney whose practice focuses on consumer law can work tirelessly to see that you are treated fairly and afforded all of the consumer rights and protections afforded to you under state and federal laws.
