Can I hold the company accountable for not keeping my truck safe? Posted on July 22, 2011

My 1970 pickup was stolen from a body shop in South Carolina in May. It was parked in front of the garage in an open parking lot. The truck was locked when I dropped it off 3 weeks earlier. I only had liability insurance because of the age of the truck and added cost of insuring a classic vehicle. I had invested over 13 thousand dollars in improvements since buying the truck in 1993. The owner of the shop says his insurance only covers what is inside his shop, not outside. I can't afford to hire a lawyer. Can I hold the owner accountable for not safe-guarding my truck in Magistrate’s Court?
