If an uninsured car was stolen from the lot of an auto shop is the shop owner liable for any damages?
Yes. This is a classic bailor/bailee situation and the shop was required to protect you car very diligently or pay for any damages incurred. Your insurance if you had it, wouldn't have been involved. The shop is your first recourse and he should have insurance.

If an unlicensed uninsured minor driving a car with the owners permission has a parking lot accident is the owner liable or the minors parent?
The insurance company is not liable for paying damages. The minor was knowingly breaking the law by driving w/o a license. The parent of the child will be held liable for dama…ges. As will the person/owner of the vehicle if they knew the minor was not a legally licensed driver. If you let an un liscensed/uninsured minor driver your vehicle, your asking for it. If you werent the parent of the minor, they could sue you as well for neglect.
Answer . This will depend on the state laws where the car loan was made. You mention repossess, was the car in your possession while the loan was active or was it being …held at their property. The reason I ask is since most Pawnshops are required by law to hold the item, whereas another business, Title Loans are not required to hold the vehicle. Either way, you should have been provided with a contract that would show when the default date is/was. Also in most States both of these businesses are regulated by state laws and would have to abide by these limits. Phil
If your car was hit in a parking lot while you were in the store is the parking lot owner liable in any way for your deductible?
Answer . Unfortunately not. The owner assumes no legal responsibility for what happens in the parking lot. You'll be responsible for the deductable, which is why we have …insrurance; otherwise, the cost to fix your vehicle might be much more. You can check to see if maybe there's surveillance footage that might show what kind of car hit you. Particularly good cameras can often catch license plates.. Answer . No. In a hit and run situation, you should file a police report. Unfortunately, unless the other car is found, your insurance company will have to cover the damamges.
Can you get a mechanic shop to pay for your car if it was parked on their lot when it was damaged by a hit and run driver?
Answer . The mechanic is not responsible for what happens in his parking lot. Your car has insurance, you will have to file the claim through your company. You should file… a police report so that if the hit and run guy is caught, he will be responsible.
Start by contacting them in person and then write them a letter andcall the Better Business Bureau in your area. You can also file acomplaint with the Illinois Attorney Genera…l Consumer Fraud Bureau.If that does not resolve the issue you can take them to smallclaims court.
the repair shop. I would say the party or parties that stole the vehicle are responsible.
not a whole lot, after taxes, payroll, supplys, overhead operating cost
victim compensated in hit/run stolen car
Not for one car damaging another, the driver is responsible for that, but if a light pole falls on your car perhaps
I am no auto shop owner but as to how I observe, to be an auto repair shop owner, you should be passionate about cars. It's not helpful that you're just knowledgeable about ca…rs and repairs. It is more important that you love what you're doing. It's no easy job. You can get pissed off at any time due to difficulty in doing repairs and stuffs but if you love what you're doing, you'll figure out a way to do it with ease. You should also be flexible and adept in the different techniques that will lessen the load of your job.
There are alot of shops
NO Another View: If the parking lot was manned by an attendant you MAY have a claim. If it was un-manned, probably not.
Is the registered owner of a car responsible for any damages caused to other cars until the car is reported stolen?
Not usually, but there are certain factors depending upon local law, and the police and the insurance companies will always look into it if it appears suspicious. For instanc…e - if you/yourself (or a friend) wrecked your car and then subsequently tried to avoid responsbility by claiming it was stolen . . this will probably raise the interest of the investigating authorities, and if you are found to be lying, could result in an additional charge of FRAUD being added to whatever charges might arise from the collision (e.g.: hit-and-run - false report to the police - etc).
