No actual law that I know of states that if a dealer knows a car has been in accident he has to tell you. Unless the car has a salvage title or you do a carfax you won't know.

It depends on the state. Most have a minimum damage disclosure meaning that if the car was damaged and it cost over $x to fix, then they have to tell you about it. The dollar amount varies by state though so you'll have to check local laws...

there is a law that he can't lie to you about it. If he says no, then no, if he says he doesn't think so, then yes.

you would have to prove that the dealer knew the car was wrecked and then lied to you that it wasent.
