A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It could depend on how severe the incident was and its duration. One possibility with the attorneys who declined the case could be that they did not see serious liability on the part of the car wash, or that they did not see the damages as significant. You would represent yourself as a claimant. There are resources for this online. Some unified court system websites have resources for do-it-yourself plaintiffs in terms of forms, instructions, and general information. It could depend on your court system and its website. Good luck
