At Ayala we are passionate about protecting and representing the little guy.

Anyone towing a vehicle in Florida without the consent of the owner must comply with the requirements of Florida Statutes Section 715.07. If you parked at a spot, and your car was towed when you came back, contact the local police department to report the vehicle as missing. Local law enforcement will be able to tell you whether your vehicle has been towed and, if so, which towing company towed the vehicle and where your vehicle is stored.

If your vehicle was damaged in the towing process, you may recover the costs to repair your vehicle. Florida Statutes also require that the towing company store your vehicle within 10 miles of the towing site. If your vehicle was taken to a storage location more than 10 miles from the location of the tow, your rights may have been violated.

There are also local rules that regulate how much a towing company can charge your vehicle based on its size and the time it was stored at its facilities.

All these laws and rules are there to protect you from Towing Companies’ predatory practices. If you believe you were not parked illegally, and yet, were towed, contact our office.

We will pursue your towing case on a contingency fee basis, which means you will have no responsibility for legal fees or expenses.

Four Elements That Make a Good Unlawful Towing Case in Florida

Though there are a lot of tows that are arguably illegal, not all illegal tows make for a good case. Here are important factors that make a viable, winnable unlawful towing lawsuit. First, you want the tow to be unlawful to begin with, not debatable. For example, if the potential plaintiff was actually improperly parked at a visitor’s spot rather than a resident’s space, even…

In the present case, Ayala’s client alleged that, despite having a valid reservation agreement (and email confirmations permitting her…
