What can a consumer do if a mechanic is negligent in repairing the vehicle, and this negligence leads to a future problem or an accident?
In the event that the consumer has reason to suspect that a repair facility performed a repair negligently, and has thus caused further damage to the vehicle as a consequence, the consumer has the burden of proof and must obtain a expert mechanic to inspect the vehicle and testify that the previous mechanic was negligent, and specifically, that their negligence was the exact cause of the current problem(s), or that their negligence created a condition that was the direct cause of an accident.
