See this law. It appears that WV never passed the non-consent tow legislation. Here is the closest law that I found. Before I can answer your question, I need to know is the company that was supposed to repair your jeep the one that abandoned it or called the tow company to take it off their lot? Did you have an outstanding bill with them?
