Then, of course, I would "remit" to the jurisdictional maximum of the Small Claims court, and call it a day. The extra $350.00, when compared to the time and energy, attorney's fees, and costs, involved for District court, does not make economic sense. Small Claims court does not allow attorneys. It's the "People's Court" and it's easy to fill out the forms, and to present your case and evidence to the judge (estimates of damage and photos of the vehicle). The court also has FREE Small Claims court Advisors - - not to represent you, but to assist you outside of the courtroom to help you better present your case, and give you other good tips, and to help you with the forms. Make an appointment to speak with an Advisor as soon as possible by calling your local Small Claims court.
Good luck to you.
