I was in a car accident last week and they did not use a flatbed truck to tow my WRX. They towed it like a normal car with its front wheels off the ground and the rear wheels on the ground. This is my first AWD car, and after the shock of seeing my subie hurt and while giving a statement to the police I didn't even think about how it has to be towed on a flatbed.
Now I cannot change the gear in my car. The shifter is stuck in one position and I cannot move it at all. This was not a problem after the accident, as I put it into first and turned the vehicle off after the wreck. So I'm thinking this was caused by their improper towing but I want to be sure. What exactly happens when you incorrectly tow the WRX?
And will they be liable for the damages done to my car? The police called the tow truck to tow my car and they did not even come up to me to ask me anything about the car. What options do I have to make them pay up?
Thanks for any help.
