Unlawful Towing Practices Attorneys in California & Massachusetts
Have you or a loved one recently had your vehicle towed without your knowledge and felt that it was not justified and/or the towing bill was overly excessive? Nonconsensual tows are a common occurrence, along with inflated towing and storage fees even when the towing was agreed to. However, there are a number of laws and regulations in California and Massachusetts designed to mandate how towing companies operate while protecting the rights of customers. These regulations and statutes strictly limit the amounts that towing companies are permitted to charge while transporting vehicles to their storage yards whether the tow was consensual or nonconsensual.
These towing fee limitations include, among other things:
- The amount the towing company can charge per mile
- The amount the towing company can charge for fuel surcharges
- The amount they can charge for vehicle storage at their lot
In addition, many of those statutes require a towing service to make available to the tow recipient certain mandatory information on an official towing slip before they are allowed to charge for certain services or related costs. In most cases towing companies are prohibited from charging additional fees not permitted under the law.
