Your auto mechanic is charged with the duty to keep your car in a safe, working order in conformity with industry and manufacturer standards. But what if your mechanic breaches that duty and their negligence causes you to be in a crash? If so, then you can sue your auto mechanic under several theories of liability, including negligence, products liability, unfair business practices, and others.
Examples of negligent repair, maintenance, and upkeep that can result in auto accidents include:
- Improper tire replacement, inflation, or balance
- Improper brake maintenance, replacement, or repair
- Modification of the suspension system resulting in a vehicle that doesn’t handle properly
- Disabling safety features (such as airbags) or warning systems
- Using previously damaged parts, including tires, and passing them off as if they were new, resulting in an unsafe vehicle.
It’s always important to make sure your mechanic is properly licensed and certified for the work they intend to do. If they make a mistake and you’re lucky enough to catch it before it causes an injury accident, then you may very well have a warranty claim against your auto mechanic that you can often handle directly with them.
