If you made demand to the towing company that they turnover your car, and they improperly failed to do so within a reasonable amount of time, the company may be liable for conversion (civil theft) of your car. Your damages in that instance would be the fair market value of the car. If the value of the car is less than $10,000, you can sue in small claims court.

You can sue them for "conversion" and other causes of action. Hire a lawyer immediately because if you wait too long to file a lawsuit, you may lose the right to sue them. Sounds like you have a good case. Good luck
