Learn how faulty repairs lead to accidents, how to prove liability against a negligent mechanic, and what it takes to win your vehicle accident lawsuit.
In Greater Los Angeles we rely on our vehicles to get to work, school, beaches, a Dodgers game, Disneyland and beyond. In turn, we rely on our auto mechanics to repair our cars, SUV’s, trucks, and motorcycles to keep us up and running. When we take our cars in for service we expect them to be returned to us in perfect shape. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Tips to Avoid Accident Due to Faulty Repairs
Faulty repairs, whether negligent or intentional, include deficient mechanical repairs, issues with wiring and hoses, improper parts replacement, reassembling failures, and other similar problems.
To avoid this nightmare, here are some tips to select a reputable, top-notch auto mechanic:
- Verify their license and certificates at California Bureau of Automotive Repair
- Make sure their facility and garage pass the eye test (clean, orderly, and friendly)
- Check online reviews at sites like Yelp and others
- For more information on mechanics, check these sites as well: Automotive Maintenance Repair Association (AMRA); Automotive Service Association (ASA); and Better Business Bureau (BBB).
By starting off with a top-quality mechanic you should be okay, but if you suffer an auto accident after a repair job, it’s vital to first seek immediate medical attention then enlist the help of a powerhouse Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.
Proving How the Auto Accident Happened Due to Faulty Repair
In our civil justice system, the burden of proof is on the injured party and proving a negligent repair caused your auto accident is a complex process where you must:
- Prove the repair was indeed faulty
- Prove a causal link between the faulty repair and your accident
- Prove a link between your faulty repair auto accident and your injuries
