Skillfully Representing Victims Of Odometer Tampering
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), odometer tampering is a trend that’s on the rise in Colorado and across the country. Auto dealers have been committing this type of fraud for decades. However, technological advancements have made it easier to roll back digital odometers without leaving evidence.
Fortunately, our team at Griffin Newell, LLC, knows how to uncover auto fraud and get justice for consumers who have been cheated by auto dealers. We are led by attorney Ian Griffin, who has extensive automotive and warranty knowledge. Attorney Ian Griffin leverages this insight when he represents consumers who have been harmed by odometer tampering and other forms of auto fraud.
Understanding This Crime
Colorado and federal laws ban odometer tampering, and for good reason. If you buy a car with a rolled-back odometer, it’s likely that you paid much more than you should have. It’s also likely that you’ll have higher repair costs to maintain a vehicle that is older than advertised.
Should you try to sell your car in the future, you will be hard-pressed to find a buyer. A car dealership may not allow you to trade in this vehicle, and a private buyer may not want to risk purchasing your car, either.
How Our Representation Can Make A Difference
Before entering the legal field, attorney Ian Griffin worked as a field service engineer for Ford Motor Company and ran two Firestone stores. He knows how cars operate and how to establish wear and tear in vehicles. If you believe that you are a victim of odometer tampering, he is equipped to build a compelling case.
In Colorado, victims of auto fraud can sue perpetrators for damages and have the other party pay for court and legal fees. The perpetrator may also face criminal charges. Colorado’s prosecutors do not take this matter lightly, and neither do we.
