Hello,
.
If the mechanic has not repaired the car as agreed and caused further damage, then you could have grounds to file suit in small claims court for breach of contract. You would need to get estimates for the cost of repairing any damages that the mechanic has caused to use as evidence. The limit in CT small claims is $5,000 and you don't need an attorney to represent you. The costs are minimal and are recoverable on top of any judgment you may receive.
.
After you file suit, the mechanic may decide to simply repair the vehicle, if you allow it, rather than be dragged into court and potentially be held liable for the cost of having someone else repair it.
