If your transmission was damaged during the towing of your repossessed vehicle which you recovered can you get the towing company or lender to pay for the damages?

Probably not. The risk was yours since towing was the logical next step for failing to meet the requirements of the loan. It was your failure to meet the requirements of the loan which led to the vehicle being repossessed which subsequently caused the vehicle to be towed. All the towing company needs to do is to prove that they used standard towing practices.

What can you do if you have a clear title and your car gets repossessed?

If you have a clear title, you car can't be repossessed. Either the title isn't clear or the leinholder believes monies are still owed on the car. If the title is clear, show it to the company authorizing the repossession. If you truly had clear title and there were no leins or other encumberances and a judge didn't declare that the car was to be sold to satisfy OTHER debts, you can sue for damages. If you didn't owe money to the people who had the car repossessed, you should be able to sue them for LOTSA BUCKS, and you definitely should.

How can a person take a car away from someone who doesn't have auto insurance?

I assume you mean a repossession of a vehicle if you let your insurance cancel. When you purchase a vehicle and finance the cost of the vehicle you sign a legally binding contract. One of the terms in the contract is always that you must carry physical damage auto insurance payable to the finance company if the vehicle is a total loss or damaged. If you fail to keep this insurance you have broken the contract and the vehicle is subject to repossession and you may be sued for additional damages if the value of the vehicle is less than the amount owed to the finance company.

Can you file breaking and entering repossession in nc?

The question is unclear. If the repossession agent broke into a garage or other structure to secure a vehicle, then he is in violation of law, state and federal law. This being the case, you would do as you would for any other breaking and entering situation...call the police and file charges.Additionally, if this is the case, you would hire a civil litigator to file a claim in state and federal courts against the driver, anyone who was with him at the time, and the company that employs him for violation of the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collections Practices Act) and pertinent state laws. The federal law permits at least $50,000 in court cost, $50,000 in legal fees, and substantial punitive damages. Not to mention, a vehicle repossessed in such a scenario has been wrongfully repossessed and must be returned at no cost to you.If the vehicle was simply repossessed because you failed to honor the loan contract, then there was no breaking and entering, and you have no recourse.
