Can any one help? I recently transported a wrecked vehicle on the interstate on a flat bed trailer. The individuals that I transported this vehicle for are claiming that they should not have to pay me due to damage done by a 4" strap used to hold the vehicle on the trailer. I claim that the strap was the only way to safely transport the vehicle. I believe that air being forced through a hole the size of a basketball would have blown the hood off the vehicle on the road. They claim it could have been held on with a bungee strap or rope tied inside the engine compartment. I believe that there would have been enough force going through the hole by the hood and the drivers side fender that the hood would have been blown off the vehicle. I used that 4" strap for safety reasons. They are refusing to pay me for the work due to the dents caused in the passenger side front fender by the strap. I am trying to determine the amount of pressure created by freeway speeds blowing into the hole that may have caused the hood to come off the vehicle. I feel like they are trying to extort the money from me and could really use some guidance in determining if their strap would have held the hood down. I have pictures of the vehicle.

Can anyone help? I am tired of being taken advantage of.
