My car got stolen last year and the insurance payed me for the value and made me send them tittle and keys. I aslo signed electronically a release of liability which had not yet been filled out on their side (i didnt think anything of it) i thought they would handle that. Few months later my car is found and impounded and i notify the insurance agent who asks me to go to the tow yard as for some reason the car is still in my name. I coudnt get the car out and after comunication with both insurance agent and tow company i stop hearing from them one day and i assume that my insurance agent handled it and got the car. Forward to now a few months later, and i get a letter from tow yard saying i have to pay 11,000 dollars for storage fees. I call the dmv and they say my car is still in my name And the insurance company tells me they sent me back the tittle because the tow yard fees where to high. I never got notified of them deciding to trow the problem back at me and now i dont know what to do.
- Was the insurance company legally required to transfer the title to the car?
- Was the company legally required to notify me that the car remaiend in my name at a yard that charged high fees?
- Is the company in any way liable for the payment of those fees?
- Can I claim that I never authorized the yard to store the car at any such fee?
