Hi! LegalGems here. My goal: To Do My Best To Assist You. Please remember, I can only provide general information,as this is a public forum.
I'm sorry to hear of this situation. If they made the problem worse, you can bring it to a different repair shop, and ask that this company reimburse you for the cost of repairs.
If they refuse to reimburse you, you can bring an action in small claims, based on a breach of contract cause of action.
Generally, the idea of a breach of contract action is to restore the plaintiff to the position s/he would have been in, but for the defendant's breach. This would typically include third party repairs to remedy the damage caused by the defendant.
You are welcome. here is the link to small claims: http://www.flcourts.org/gen_public/family/self_help/smallclaims.shtml
