Los Angeles, CA asked in Legal Malpractice for California

Q: I did not have the funds to make a payment and the company kept running my account every day costing me 900. Legal?

I'm on a bi-weekly payment plan with a company. I was in the hospital and did not have funds in my account for the agreed date. The manager then kept running my card every day after which my bank kept and then declined as insufficient funds costing me hundreds. Is this legal for the company to keep running the card without authorization? I keep asking for the form that says this is allowed and none comes. I thought it was only allowed on the agreed upon date
