Mike, actually IF you can prove the injury happened during the repo and was the agents fault, you will come out ahead. Now if the agent had cameras on the truck as most do, you may face an uphill battle. Otherwise, it will be a you said/ he said spitting contest as to who is right and who is wrong. Mike, it is your responsibility to get your payments in on time as agreed. It is the lenders responsibilities to repo the collateral when it becomes apparent that you are not able to do as agreed. Why didnt you simply give the repoman the money that you were gonna take the dealer first thing in the morning? Save you a trip to town. IF you can prove your allegations, go see an attorney ASAP and get the ball rolling. Good Luck

Of course you can. Just weaving too much or speed can get you a reckless ticket.

Of course the best way to avoid repossession is to stay current with your payments. If that is not possible, don't just ignore it. Call you bank or loan company and explain the problem. Quite often you can reach an agreement that will forestall repossession.

Well, first, you'd have to explain how the repossession was illegal. There really isn't any such thing as "illegal repossession"... repossession is a legal process by which a lien holder can recovery property which does belong to them in response to a delinquency of payment or violation of the contract.A vehicle which has no grounds for repossession but was taken was not repossessed - that's theft, plain and simple, and if that's the case, then you'd file a police report, an investigation would commence, arrests would be made, and you'd either recover your vehicle or get an insurance payment if the vehicle was unrecoverable. I'm guessing that's not the case, since you're asking this question here.State laws on time which a delinquency must continue for before seizure of assets can be made varies by state... if this law was violated, then you're going to have to lawyer up and take the legal route against the lienholder (the repossessor is not liable in this instance, as they are contractors following the instructions of the lien holder).A criminal act on the part of the repossession agency has occurred if...A locked gate is breached in the course of the repossession.A secured building is unlawfully entered in the course of the repossession.A vehicle other than the one being repossessed was entered without permission during the course of the repossessionProperty damage occurs during the course of the repossession.In the case of a commercial vehicle, a cargo payload is taken with the vehicle.A trailer attached to the repossessed vehicle which itself is not up for repossession is taken with the vehicle.In those instances, a police report needs to be filed. However, if the repossession itself is legit, that still won't get you the vehicle back.

Of course it is. You voluntarily turn the car in for repossession. It will stay on your credit report for 7 years.

Only if the repossessor has an order for repossession of the trailer, as well. And even then, only under certain circumstances. If it's a commercial tractor trailer, and there's a load in that trailer, they may not take it, as the order of repossession does not cover the load, and they will face criminal charges if they do such.In the course of repossessing a vehicle, the repossession agency may not enter or move any vehicle (including a trailer) which is not in their order for repossession. They may detach a trailer from a truck being repossessed, but they can't actually take it.
