    Answered . Can you get a refund on a bad car repair? Can you make the repair shop fix it right or pay for repairs that are needed because they repaired it wrong? Can you get out of having to pay for a bad repair job or get your money back when they do something that makes it even worse (like, damage one part while repairing another part, or if an accident happens to your car while the shop is test driving it, etc) through no fault of your own? Maybe, because people usually have more legal rights than they realize when it comes to a bad repair job. But there’s no way for us to tell without a lot more info from you and actually going over all your repair paperwork too. What the repair shop said they would do when they started the job, what your repair paperwork says, whether or not you got any written warranties for the work done, if the repair shop lied or hid anything from you - all of that can be important to knowing what your legal rights are. A Consumer Law or Lemon Law attorney can help you figure that out. They both usually handle bad repair cases too. Talk to a local attorney near you. There is a Free Online 50 State National List of Consumer Law Lawyers at http://www.USLemonLawyers.com and lawyers don’t pay to get listed here and most of them are members of the only national association for Consumer Law lawyers, NACA.net. You can also look for one here on Avvo under the Find a Lawyer tab. Or you can call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Consumer Law attorney near you. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or your rights expire (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to a Consumer Law attorney and finding out what your rights are.
