Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. Why has the shop failed to be responsible? Did you ask for or did they file with their insurance company?
Thank you for the reply and the additional information. Bailment is the process of placing personal property or goods in the temporary custody or control of another. The custodian or holder of the property, who's responsible for the safe keeping and return of the property, is know as the bailee. The person who delivers or transfers the property to the bailee is known as the bailor. In all bailment situations, the bailee has a minimum duty of care to ensure the safety of the property. If the bailee breaches or fails to uphold that duty, he can be legally liable for damages. A bailor is entitled to recover damages for lost or damaged property if he can show that the bailee failed to exercise the required degree of care and proximately caused damage or loss of the property. As such, in this situation, your car should have been secured in a safe environment. If it was not, they can be liable and they have insurance which should cover the claim. If they refuse, then you do have to sue them

Great to hear back from you. I just kindly ask that when we are done, you remember to rate my help at the top. Yes, it is possible that he is illegally and improperly operating his business. For a situation like this, you likely want to contact sunrise.org and the Attorney General and file a report and have them look into this man. If he is still conducting business and his LLC is inactive and he is not licensed or registered to conduct business,. he could face civil fines/penalties and possible criminal charges.
