Hello. My name is***** am a US licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.
Did you sign the written lease for the vehicle which stated how many miles you were allowed to drive and what the cost of excess miles would be?
Thank yo for your follow up.
Unfortunately, if the consumer signed an agreement which state that the consumer would be liable to pay for the excess miles, then the consumer would be liable to pay for such excess miles (regardless of what the verbal discussion might have been, as written agreement would trump any verbal promises or assurances).
If the consumer doesn't pay or negotiate a settlement of the cost of the excess miles, then the a lawsuit can be filed which would seek not only the cost of the extra miles, but attorney's fees and court costs, so it is always a good idea to negotiate an amicable resolution before any lawsuit is filed.
