Yes, if the vehicle was damaged due to their negligence while in their possession then they are liable to you for the damage. Most auto shops have insurance to cover such losses.

Since the claim does not exceed $12,000 you can sue them in small claims court to recover your loses. Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
