Insurance companies are warning folks in our area to be cautious when purchasing a used vehicle. Over 16,000 auto claims have been made during the flood situation in South Louisiana. Experts warn that many of those cars will end up for sale and will be a money pit for whoever buys them.

If you unknowingly purchase a flood damaged vehicle, contact your state's attorney general as soon as possible because you could be protected by state lemon laws.
