An employee of a shop where I had my Viper for service took my 97 GTS car out for a joy ride just prior to my picking it up today. The results are seen in the pictures below. What are the actions I need to take to insure I am compensated for the full value of the car including all my mods? The employee says he is fully insured but I’m concerned that his insurance will not cover the mods. The car departed controlled flight, flew through a ditch, impacted a telephone pole and flipped on it’s lid. The guy laying beside the car is not the perp, just the wrecker driver.
Something similar happened to my dad about 10 years ago. He had a Toyota MR2 that he took to a shop for a tune up. He got the car back fine, but he found out a while later that the mechanic had taken the car out for a drive, gotten in an accident with another car, then repaired the damage to my dad’s car and never told him about it.
I forget what the resolution was, but I seem to remember that my dad’s insurance went up (or was going to until he figured out what had happened).
