Figured this would be a good place to get some advice from anyone that may have been in the same situation...
So, long story short, I traded in my 2010 Mazda 6 for a 2016 from a local Mazda dealer about 3 years ago, for my mom to use and take over payments. Car is in my name.
Fast forward to this year, a few months ago, a fire starts in my moms garage (Assuming it was the car) Her and my sister barely make it out, while the fire extended to the whole house, basically causing them to lose everything they owned. Its been a rough few months but I'm glad they didnt get injured and that im able to help them.
Unfortunately, without my knowledge I did not know my mom did not get the additional insurance that covers fires/flood, natural disasters etc(I have full coverage on my Jeep and would have told her to do the same had i known) so insurance was unable to help.
We finally get the report back from the fire department and it basically says the fire originated in the engine.
What can/should be done? Other than the obvious of getting an attorney.
Never thought I would be in this situation, nor do i know anyone else in the same, so i'm not sure if I should contact the dealer or go straight directly to Mazda? I know it may be a legal shit show,so should i just get with an attorney and have them see what can be done?
Thanks in advance Pirates
