The body shop was sued, and while under oath on the witness stand, the shop manager admitted to shortcutting the repair because the insurance company wouldn’t pay for the shop to weld the roof as Honda instructed. The court found the body shop criminally negligent and awarded the couple a $31.5 Million dollar settlement. Still, the amount of money will never fix the injuries suffered, but the couple who were unknowingly driving in a death trap.
“So … if you brought your car into my shop, the insurance company’s going to dictate … how we’re going to repair your car…by not paying the bill.
