HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard. I am glad to hear they will pay for the impound fee. Have you requested they take you to pick up your car?I suggest you do that. Unfortunately, if you are looking to sue, I suggest you have a basis only if you can prove that the only reason your car was towed illegally was to intentionally cause you mental anguish. Otherwise, I suggest, a court will view it as an error.
