I bought insurance at the dealer thru the geico dealer service agent the dealer verified with geico I had full coverage gave me a paper showing comp and collision. now they say I never had collision dealer said geico is wrong and don't listen to them but car is still not getting fixed I think geico and dealer both involved in selling salvage car fraud or why would car have two vins can I sue I paid cash for the car
A: It sounds like you might be able to hold someone responsible. You should sit down with an attorney to discuss possible options.
Yelena Gurevich agrees with this answer
You can always sue. The issue is will you win and if so will the Defendant be able to pay.
Contact a lawyer and discuss getting police, DMV and Consumer Affairs involved.
You may have to name both as defendants… and if damages are under $10,000 sue in small claims.
However, I would bet they would want to settle.
