I am going to small claims court with a Transmission Repair company that tried to repair my vehicle twice and failed both times(within a four month period). I then took the vehicle to another shop and they fixed it with now problems. The initial company refuses to give a refund since I took it to another shop and on their warranty form it states if another company touches the vehicle, their warranty is void.
I am adding the full question here as the space on the website for the question is too short:
"I filed the small claims paperwork based on the company registerd on the state website. The address is in another city and county. As I review my reciepts I noticed they have a different name on the receipt and when I go to the state website I do find that name as well registered in my county. Is this a problem that my original documents have a different name even though the company advertises with this name and it is the name on the sign of their building?
It is a problem if you do not name the Defendant properly. I would sue them in all potential names for the company. If you do not properly name the Defendant and the statute of limitations runs, then you no longer have a claim against them. I would consult with a local attorney in order to get guidance on making sure that the property entity is in the case.
