    I went to a hotel for reception and parked my car through valet parking. Suddenly the parking area was flooded and my car submerged. The hotel agreed to pay on the day of incident and after the vehicle service, now refusing to pay since it is a huge amount. Reason given by them is Parking at owners risk and the incident is a natural calamity, so they said the cannot pay. If i file a consumer case against them, is there any possibilites to get the payment from them.
