I need some legal assistance regarding a valet situation.

Margaritaville in Biloxi Mississippi valeted my car. They returned it with substantial damage. They admitted to it and have volunteered to pay for the repair and rental. I am however looking to sell my vehicle after the repair and now with the damage, it will show up on my Carfax report as body damage / repaired. This Incident has depreciated my vehicle’s sale price, therefore I am at a loss due to negligence of the valet. I’ve reached out to the COO of Margaritaville and he stated they’re only authorized for repair and rental. What can I do to recoup my loss in depreciation and the fact that I Have to take off of work losing working hours to repair a vehicle that margaritaville damaged. Assistance please.

It's doubtful that they will do more than repair and give you a rental. I agree with Neil, this is probably a legal issue, as you noted in your post.
