Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I welcome you to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. The question and response may be viewed by other parties as noted in JA’s terms of service. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

Typically the car wash would be responsible for the damage in that they have an implied warranty under your contract (agreement) to not damage the vehicle. If they have bold and conspicuous signs stating they are not responsible for this type damage then they may be able to rely on that if you could see it when you signed up for the wash. On the receipt you received there is also typically a disclaimer, but since most customers would not see this until it is to late it could be argued that this is not effective notice.

Was there some kind of notice posted near the entrance related to the owner saying that you assume the risk?

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
