View Full Version : NC people: Legal advice needed

Anyone know any good lawyers?

Found out my car was in a wreck but wasn't told when I purchased the car. I need to get in touch with a lawyer to find out my rights. Any recommendations? Thanks!

I'm certainly no lawyer...but I know a little about the situation you are going through.

Currently in NC, if a vehicle is damaged 25% or more of the retail value of the vehicle at the time of the loss, the damages must be disclosed upon sale of the vehicle (via an MVR181 form). This is for vehicles 5 years old or newer. This is to protect the consumer. If your vehicle was hit less than 25% of retail value, the seller would not have to disclose the damages.

Hope this helps...and sorry about your situation...Good luck!
