My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: CA
I put tape over my broken headlight cover.
I'm now selling the car. If the car catches fire on the new owner due to this cheap fix (i.e. tape sets on fire from the heat of the headlights), would I be responsible?
It's never happened to me over thousands of miles. But I don't want to be liable if it were to happen to someone else
This method was recommended to me by a mechanic since it's a low value car and not worth appropriately fixing.
