The Injustice Of Salvage Fraud
When you buy a vehicle from a motor vehicle dealership or auction, you’re supposed to be disclosed the vehicle’s accident history if the seller knows about any damage. Any accident is supposed to be accounted for on the vehicle’s history.
However, many dealerships will sell vehicles that have had major accidents were lemons or were previously in a flood. In some of the worst cases, they will sell vehicles that insurance companies have declared as total losses. They fix them up a little to make them presentable and sell them. The problem is that the sellers will sometimes not inform buyers about a vehicle’s true history.
As a buyer, you are entitled to full disclosure as to the vehicle’s accident history. If the seller intentionally hides that information, it is fraud. It is illegal and you can take action to obtain compensation for your losses. We can help you.
