Q: i bought a motor home from a private seller who told me it ran perfectly and had no issues. it caught fire a month after
a day after i got it it started dying on me anytime i started it. i found out the carburetor was rebuilt and wrongly at that, pieces missing and bent. then i found out they rewired it to add air conditioners which crossed with the fuel line. i was driving it the next day and it caught fire with my kids and pets in it. we made it out alive but could have all died. the seller blocked me after i told him. do i have a case? i was not told of any mechanical work they did to it.
A: I'm sorry but I don't practice in this area of the law. I would suggest you search for someone under auto sales; possibly breach of contract. Your matter deals with a transaction rather than a personal injury such as in a car crash case. You should try to focus in your part of the state as I think it might be difficult to get an attorney from quite a distance away to handle your claim. Good luck.
