What happens if the repo guy damaged my car?

I was two months late on my car payment due to surgery. The bank sent the repo guy who tried to tow my car but it slipped and was damaged. The bank refused any responsibility. They also refuse to give me the repo company contacts. Now my insurance wants to pay out but someone has to be held responsible for the damage.

I'm sorry for the difficult situation. If the towing company damaged your vehicle, then they would be responsible for paying for the damage. Because your bank is being difficult, I recommend contacting your insurance provider. They might have resources to track down the towing company to get the necessary information. Outside of that, you might want to contact a lawyer. However, I would recommend holding off on this until you speak with your insurance company. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Does car insurance cover a locksmith?

If you have roadside assistance on your insurance policy then it is extremely likely that your policy will cover a locksmith to unlock your vehicle. You might even be able to get your vehicle "re-keyed" under your roadside assistance coverage if you aren't able to find your keys.

Should I get insurance or car registration first?

In most states you are required to provide proof that your vehicle is insured before allowing you to register your vehicle. The insurance policy must meet the state's minimum coverage requirement to tag your vehicle so you will want to take your proof of coverage with you to verify your compliance with the law.
