You could contact an... View More

An easy answer is can you get insurance? If not, maybe you want to apply your talents to a different type of site. People will want to get at you and you may not want to have to hire lawyers at the other end. The short answer is if you allow people to say libelous things, then you may have exposure... View More

You would want to ask that they allow you to get personal items. They can't impound unless they believe a crime was committed or if the crash resulted in a fatality or similar. If you aren't the owner of the trailer or driver, then there's the problem.

It will likely be difficult to find a lawyer to take this case on a contingency basis. Take it to the store and show them the burnt phone. Perhaps they will supply you a new phone, and maybe even fix your table. You can search Google to see if others have reported similar problems.
