Filed under: Lawsuits and disputes

I had my stuff auctioned off after not being able to pay the bill from a lost job, the storage company let the buyer take my safe that had my and my daughters birth certificates and social security cards in them, the storage company called the buyer but he claims that he never took it with him, but it was never in my personal documents which also the employee i talked to said it would be safe to wait a while to come get my personal documents but i just learned that he lied to me and the personal documents have now been destroyed. Can I sue the storage company for this?

  1. YES you can sue them . . . HOWEVER
    they'll state you violated the lease
    and they gave you proper notice
    to pay/vacate and YOU dragged
    your feet. WHAT PROOF do you
    have you talked to this employee?
    Did you record this conversation?
    You have NO proof of any of this
    and you'll not be able to prevail
    unless you can find some. You
    can REPORT this company with
    your state's Licensing Agency.
    Good luck!
