Ayala Obtains $25,000 Settlement in Illegal Towing Case

By June 27, 2022No Comments

Ayala is proud to announce that it has obtained a $25,000 settlement in an unlawful towing case.

In the case Ayala’s client claimed that he parked his vehicle in the property where he was a legal resident under a residential lease. While Ayala’s client (the Plaintiff) was unloading groceries—in a matter of a few minutes—the towing company defendant towed the Plaintiff’s vehicle. The Plaintiff alleged that he was briefly parked in a place in the residential building that did not obstruct traffic or pedestrians but most importantly where most residents momentarily park to unload their groceries.

When the Plaintiff went to pick up the vehicle, he was forced to sign a release from liability even prior to inspecting the condition of his vehicle which turned out to have extensive bumper damage.

After extensive litigation, and on the eve of trial, the case settled at mediation putting an end to Ayala’s client nightmare.

As stated by attorney Eduardo A. Maura: “We are happy with the result. While we could have obtained more at trial, we are convinced that this is a good outcome for our client, which most importantly, turns the page on this disgraceful incident.”
