Negligent Maintenance & Repair

Owners that take their vehicles into a garage have the right to expect quality service. You make a deal with the mechanic to fix the specified problem and in return you will pay for the parts and labor. Unfortunately, sometimes the mechanic takes advantage of the driver’s lack of knowledge about the vehicle. This can lead to negligent maintenance checks and repairs, not fixing the whole problem or fixing the incorrect part of the car. The car may be left undriveable or in need of further repair costing additional fees.

Drivers may be able to receive compensation for negligent maintenance and repair if the case falls under two circumstances:

In order to best prove these two cases, it is important to collect all available evidence. Evidence may include pictures of the car after the service or an inspection performed at another garage verifying the problem. Talk with an attorney immediately to decide the best course of legal action for your case.
