If Your Car/Truck has been repaired by a “Certified Body Shop” like John Eagle Collision Center…You May Be Sitting in a Ticking Time Bomb
You NEED to WATCH this and Why You Should Have Concerns
Prefer to read instead of watching the video?
Because if they didn’t, you’re driving around in a time bomb that’s waiting to explode. What do I mean by that? The vehicle manufacturers provide very specific and detailed instructions to repair shops on how to properly repair vehicles. The reason the manufacturers do this is because they want those repair shops to bring the vehicle back to its original safety condition so that the vehicle will be crash-worthy and safe in the event of an accident.
However, when body shops cut corners, when they put their interest over yours, when they let the insurance companies dictate who knows more, that’s when the time bomb is set and that’s when the detonation device is released.
And guess what? You’re not going to know that you’re sitting on a time bomb waiting to explode until you or one of your family members is involved in an accident, and when it happens, catastrophe follows.
Let me tell you what’s a recipe for disaster, and that’s a body shop that cares more about making money or cares more about making its insurance company’s clients happy rather than making your vehicle safe.
It’s time for us to stand up and say enough is enough. The insurance industry needs to do what they do best and that is taking our premiums and pay off insurance claims.
We need to get them out of the vehicle repair industry because guess what? The vehicle manufacturers and the vehicle repair shops know a heck of a lot more than the insurance company will ever know. Because the insurance companies care about only one thing and that is to put money in their pocket.
Thank you and please ask your body shop and repair shop if they restored your vehicle according to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications.
Are You Driving Around in a Ticking Time Bomb Waiting to Explode?
Auto insurance companies are forcing collision centers to make substandard repairs. This is a nationwide threat to the safety of unsuspecting motorists.
The Tracy Law Firm’s Vehicle Safety Crash Lab has uncovered the car insurance industry’s dirty little secret of pressuring auto body shops into not restoring their customers vehicles to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications.
What does this mean to you and your family? If you are in an accident, the defective repair work will likely cause the failure of your vehicle’s safety systems as well as the safety cage that’s designed to protect occupants from severe injury or death.
This heavy handed pressure by auto insurance companies turns a survivable accident into a catastrophic tragedy.
It gets worse. Our accident investigations have uncovered that used car dealers are not disclosing the full history of vehicle repairs to their customers. You cannot trust CARFAX to give you a true report about a vehicle’s repair record because they only report what used car dealers tell them. As the late President Ronald Reagan used to say, “You must trust but verify.”
Ethical collision centers want to do the right thing. When selecting a body shop, you should insist that it will fight the insurance company to pay for OEM standard repairs and equipment.
You should also put your insurance agent and the insurance carrier on notice in writing that they are putting your safety in jeopardy by not following OEM standards.
When the insurance claims adjuster calls after you report an accident, start the conversation by insisting that they confirm that your vehicle will be repaired according to all OEM standards.
Unfortunately, the defective body shop repairs coerced by the insurance industry are hidden beneath a fresh coat of paint. My clients, Matthew and Marcia Seebachan, would never have bought a used car that had a history of major body work. And they certainly would not have bought the used 2010 Honda Fit had they known a new steel roof had been glued on to replace hail damage.
Sadly, none of these safety defects came to light until Matthew was almost burned to death and Marcia was crushed in what should have been in minor car accident. That’s why they asked me to file lawsuits against John Eagle Collision Center in Dallas and State Farm Auto Insurance.
If you or a loved one believe you are the victim of a defective car repair, please feel free to contact me. My team of automotive engineers will examine your vehicle in The Tracy Law Firm’s Vehicle Safety Crash Lab in Dallas to determine if a defective repair caused severe injuries or death.
