Insurance co. than took 25 additional days to approve the mistake. Total days without car 90 plus and allstate would not give rental although i took it to their recommended shop

I was told once by an attorney that if a shop quotes a time line and exceeds that, and if the time is grossly exceeded then that shop can legally be responsible for the costs you've incurred if you had rented a car to cover that time you were without yours. They also said even if you hadn't rented a car you can still sue them for public transportation costs etc. as for the other damage causes by their negligence they would also be responsible.
