Buying an automobile is one of the most expensive purchases you will make in your life. Because you probably don’t want to waste one penny, even on a used car, it is important that you get a good deal. Unfortunately, many people have been victims of auto fraud due to dealer misrepresentation.

When a dealer or individual misrepresents the condition or history of the car you bought, you deserve to be compensated for your damages. In automobile litigation in Virginia, your damages could be the cost of the vehicle, legal fees, expert fees, and incidental damages. If the seller intentionally lied to you about the car you purchased, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. As a result, your damages can exceed the cost of the car. However, you may want to keep the vehicle and just be reimbursed for the difference in the value between what you paid and what the car is really worth had it been honestly represented.

If you have been deceived by an automobile dealer in the Richmond area, you may be entitled to all the damages listed above. We will listen to your case and investigate your situation to determine what types of damages you may be entitled to. Call The Consumer Law Group in Richmond at 804-282-7900 or contact us online at
