I see that you ask a lot of questions but you have only accepted one. May I ask as to the reason for your lack of accepts before I assist you?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
wasnt satisfied with previous answers on another topic.i promise to accept this one
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 5 years ago.
No, adding the loss of employment to your suit would not be successful. That damage is too far removed and unforeseeable, since you could have gotten to work by other means. In addition, the tow truck had to know in advance that your vehicle was crucial to your employment, and serviced it knowing in advance of that explicit condition.

Sorry.

Sincerely,

Dimitry Alexander Kaplun, Esq.

im sorry i cant understand your answer.i really dont have any way to get to work.this damage is the reason i am going to lose my job.they werent supposed to repo it.my bank told me they were cancelling the repo and 4 days later they repo it and now its undriveable a rebuilt is 2700 with labor.what can i sue for?they wont pay and took 320.00 from me for a tuneup. if they are responsible which they are why cant i add loss of employment it was due to no fault of my own and im on the verge of losing my job.i also just went bankrupt
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 5 years ago.
I understand your situation and emphasize, but the the repo man, while definitely responsible for any direct damage to your car, is not legally liable to you for the fact that you may be losing your job due to his rightful (at least at the time on his manifest) reposession.

Purely financial losses from their damage to your car that are not foreseeable.

I am sorry.
