The ONLY way you can go after the tow company is by filing a Proof of Claim in the bankruptcy. The chance of getting paid, or the amount of your claim that will be paid, depends on the company's assets and other debts. (The chance is probably not high. Debts to its employees, for taxes, and certain other claims have priority over ordinary claims such as your judgment.)
There is no cost for filing a Proof of Claim.
Unless the tow company pays your judgment, you still have the right to sue the condo association or the management company or anyone else that you think is responsible for your loss.
Incidents like this are why people add "comprehensive" coverage to their car insurance.

So I bought the truck on 3/8 but couldn't pick the truck up on 3/11 Since they didn't have it done till then. They had the truck inspected by their guy. Then about 2 weeks later the passenger seat belt broke from the floor with rust around it. The...
Your rights depend to some degree on what the paperwork says, but it appears that the dealer sold you a truck that it knew had serious defects affecting safety. The dealer has your money and you have the truck. The dealer is in the position it wants to be in and will not make the situation right except under legal pressure. You need to consult a qualified consumer protection lawyer in your area. Find one through the National Association of Consumer Advocates, consumeradvocates.org.See question

I don't disagree with anything my colleagues have said, but I would add that I don't understand why you feel you need to file bankruptcy right away. Bankruptcy lawyers advise clients to wait, if possible, until they are in a stable situation, with income and expenses in some kind of balance, and not in the kind of precarious situation (e.g., homelessness) that may result in further debt.
Once you find a place to live, you will pay out some of your savings for rent/mortgage and moving expenses. You will presumably spend money on furnishings, which are exempt assets. If at the end of that process you still have surplus savings, you may establish or contribute to an IRA, which is also exempt.
Giving money away, hiding it, and repaying debts to family or friends shortly before filing bankruptcy are prohibited by bankruptcy law and can get you into a lot of trouble, but converting non-exempt assets (cash) into exempt assets (furnishings, retirement account) is allowed.See question
went to dealership purchase ethe car paper work don .told me pick it up on Thursday now they can not find the title
It's illegal to try to sell a car without the title. This law is often overlooked because frequently the titles to dealers' cars are held by the bank that is financing the dealer's inventory, and as long as it can be retrieved shortly after the dealer sells the car, it's thought that no harm has been done. But apart from the anxiety, inconvenience, and expense that this imposes on you, the buyer, it can be a sign of more profound misconduct, even fraud. If the dealer will not immediately produce the title or cancel the sale (giving you back EVERYTHING you paid), you will probably need to contact a lawyer to make them do so.See question

Regrettably, even in situations where you are legally entitled to cancel a sale and receive a refund, it is rare to be able to get it without suing the seller. You will need to decide whether to try to hire a lawyer or file a suit yourself in small claims court. In the case of a private party sale, you have the further problem that even if a court finds you entitled to the money, the seller may not have readily available assets or income from which he can be compelled to pay you.See question

I agree with your assessment that calling the police would inflame the situation. This is not really a legal question, and even though it involves a car, it has nothing to do with "lemon law" issues.See question

Just bought a car from a seller and first the starter wasent working . He replaced it and refused to give me a receipt for the work . Now the check engine light is on and he Wont answer me and the 30 days are almost up .
I'm assuming you bought the car from a dealer with a 30-day warranty. The 30 days means that the problems have to become apparent within 30 days, not that the dealer has to fix them within 30 days. Send the dealer a LETTER by ordinary mail and certified mail, explaining the problem and asking when he will fix it. Then, if you find yourself suing the dealer, you will be able to prove that he had notice of the problems within the warranty period.See question
