Don’t Let Undisclosed Car Accident And Damage History Go

Have you ever felt the sting of betrayal after purchasing a car, only to discover its tainted history of accidents and damages was kept from you? You’re not alone. Unscrupulous auto dealers and sellers often conceal critical information to make a sale, leaving you with a compromised vehicle and a sense of injustice. In such moments, standing up for your rights is not just a choice—it’s a necessity. That’s where an attorney can be your ally in the fight for fairness.

Michael Klitzke, a seasoned lawyer with a focused skill set in Auto Law, is renowned for his unique approach. His skills also yield proven results. In 2022, he earned the Best of the Bar award for securing one of the top 100 verdicts in California, with a substantial six-figure sum. Such achievements are a testament to Auto Law Firm, PC‘s commitment to justice and clients’ well-being.

Discovering Hidden Accident Or Damage History

Consumers ask about accident and damage history more than anything else when purchasing a vehicle. Dealers routinely lie in response.

Some of the common ways in which dealers lie about accident and damage history are:

  • Selling the vehicle as a Certified Pre-Owned
  • Giving the consumer a CarFax, Auto Check, or NMVTIS report that says “no accident” or “no damage”
  • Telling the consumer that the dealer does not or cannot know the history of the vehicle
  • Giving the consumer an “independent mechanic’s” inspection report that shows no problems
  • Telling the consumer the vehicle has not been in an accident or damaged OR minimizing the extent of the damage by saying it the accident was minor or only the bumper was damaged

The California Vehicle Code specifically prohibits dealers from making false or misleading representations when selling a vehicle. If the dealer told you something that was not true or gave you a document like a CarFax that was not accurate, Auto Law can help get your money back.

Dealers May Hide These Types Of Car Damage

Dealers often mask significant car damages to make a sale. These can range from minor dents and scratches to major collision-related damages that impact a vehicle’s safety and longevity. Examples include frame damage, airbag deployment or repainted surfaces, all of which are frequently hidden from potential buyers. The motive is clear: to profit at the expense of the buyer’s safety and investment.

Auto Law Firm, PC stands against such deceptive practices. Attorney Klitzke works tirelessly to help victims of auto fraud reclaim their rights and hold predatory auto dealers accountable. Working with a firm that focuses on auto law means having a dedicated team that understands the intricacies of these cases and the best strategies to combat fraud.
