In 2009, I bought a $40,000 car--2 weeks later and 1000 miles, a massive hail storm damaged my vehicle with softball size hail. I took it to a repair shop which took 8 weeks to repair and paint it (first warning sign). The paint peeled/flaked and the shop tried to blame it on rock damage. Eventually, they repainted it. The roof peeled 6mo later. They repainted it. The trunk then peeled 6mo later. In total, it's been repainted 6 times.
They're paying for the repaintings and loaner, but the car is devalued to zero. No one would buy this car. I want them to pay for a competent shop to repaint, loss wages, anguish and devaluation of the vehicle, or anything I can. They've ruined my brand new car and also never put it back together correctly.
Seems like you are a pretty good negotiator to have this repainted so many times at their expense, but if you want the shop to fork over some cash on top of it, you will have a much better chance of being successful by hiring an attorney.
I am not your attorney and we do not have an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based only on the information you provided; new facts not shared here could change the answer. Relying solely on the internet for legal information, while convenient and cost-effective, can be the path to disaster.
