Re: Body Shop - Installed Parts Incorrectly
You can try to make such a claim, at least for actual damages. The loss of time from work may or may not be seen as reasonable based on all the facts of the situation. If you do attempt to make that claim, bring proof from your employer that you were not at work during the time you are claiming you weren't there and proof of your losses (wage statements showing what you earn per hour). You will be required to explain why you could not find some other means to get to work during that time though. If you could have gone to work by using some other means of transport, you will be denied your claim for lost wages as it was you who failed to mitigate your damages and as such, the extent of the lost wages was due to your actions and not the mechanic's faulty work.
You aren't going to be given any compensation for "suffering" though.
a witness to testify that the error is what caused the damage.
What do I need from the repairing dealer to show that the radiator was installed incorrectly?
