You might be asking yourself "What does the LAW have to do with Automotive Repair?" Well, like so many other service industries, laws have been passed to protect the consumer from unscrupulous repair shops and mechanics.
It's a safe bet to say that everyone knows someone who's been taken advantage of, lied to or just plain ripped-off by a repair shop or mechanic. What you might not know is that the law is on your side! In Florida, not only are the standard consumer protection laws in place to give you (and your attorney) a recourse for dealing with general complaints and problems, but things like clear and accurate written estimates are your right to demand, as outlined by specific Florida Laws.
It is important to remember to keep very good records and to read all of your receipts and paperwork. Especially if you've bought a new vehicle and need to have it repaired. In the event that you've bought a new vehicle from a dealership that is in for constant repairs, you might find out you're dealing with an automotive lemon and then the fight escalates from a relatively small repair bill to a legal battle worth tens of thousands of dollars (or more)!
No one can see the future and you never know who or what you're going to need. It's always better to be safe than sorry and know who to call in the event you need legal help. If you've been wronged by a mechanic or you find yourself fighting a repair shop in court, hire an experienced attorney to help protect you.
