you are, no matter hows at fult.If you have ins. they will make the other party pay sometimes. but after all its your car.

- I have to disagree with the above statement. Even though it is "after all your car", it's not your fault you were in the wreck. It's not like you chose for it to happen. You did nothing wrong. They are At Fault, therefore their insurance should pay for it.

Who is responsible for towing service charges in an accident?

Well, usually, if you have reached the point of having called a tow truck, then the police have become involved, an accident report has or is being filed and no doubt fault-unless it is an extreme case in which it is uncertain or someone is desperatly trying to argue the case, then fault has been determined. Whomever is at fault will have to pay to have a car towed. The towing process would then lead to the auto garage where the damage would be accessed and repairs rendered, the final bill which would of course include the towing, would be then handed to the one at fault, along with the towing fees and repairs to their own vehicle. Insurance would no doubt cover some of this whole mess but of course rates would go up due to the accident.

What are fees for towing company?

This totally depends on the specific towing company.

In CA what legal measures can be made against you if you do not pay towing fees for a car that you plan to leave at the towing company?

I would call the towing company and ask what happens to your car if you are not able to pay the fees and claim the car. It is obviously not worth much, but you don't want these fees to grow into fines and other charges. Tell the towing company you can not afford the fees and ask who you need to contact to resolve the issue. Maybe they will agree to take the car and dispose of it for whatever cash they can get. If you make it sincerely understood that you are unable to pay, they may agree in order to get the car off the lot and the fees off the books. Worth a try. I don't know how much you owe in fees but your car is worth at least $125 as scrap!

Can a tow company sell a vehicle without a pink slip?

In most states, a towing company can sell a vehicle without a pink slip or its title. However, the towing company, in most states, has to first file a lien on the vehicle for the fees of towing and storage. After the term of the lien expires, the towing company can get a title for the vehicle and sell it legally.
