A: You must be able to prove that the repair shop was responsible for placing the razor blade on your seat. That may not be easy unless you can demonstrate that you were charged for some procedure in the interior of your car that would have required or may have required use of a razor blade. You also need to consider how badly you were injured. Did the cut require surgery or was it addressed with a Band-Aid. If your injury was significant, I would urge you to consult a local personal injury attorney to provide them with more details. If you are simply annoyed and you sustained a minor cut because somebody was lazy and irresponsible, I understand that not all situations are amenable to litigation.
