I am sorry to hear about this situation. Please tell me, did you file this in small claim court? And, what date was the judgment rendered?
If not happy with the decision, you have the right to appeal this judgment to District Court. See HERE for instructions on how to do so. The Court may override the original small claims court's decision if there was error in law or fact or if the small claims court abused its discretion. The matter must be begun within 14 days of the original judgment.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
Likely, no. The Court would only order fees/fines in judgment (more fees if it feels they are warranted than originally awarded in small claims), and not an order for a better vehicle.
Gentle Reminder: Please, use REPLY or SEND button to keep chatting, or RATE POSITIVELY and SUBMIT your rating when we are finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating.
Yes, but my answer stays the same:
Just the damages seem to be ordered.
That means that the Defendant has to pay you money, but that is it.
