I'm sorry to hear about your situation - especially that it all happened one day after surgery. Unfortunately, this is a bit outside of our area of expertise at the Construction Legal Center. While we regularly discuss construction liens, our focus remains in the field of construction law and construction payment. However, there are some online resources which could be helpful for you. Specifically, Avvo, Lawyers.com, and JustAnswer all provide the ability for individuals to ask legal questions and receive answers from attorneys. These sites feature attorneys from all different practice areas - beyond just construction.

Matt is correct, more relevant assistance could likely be found at one of the sites he listed.

Briefly, though, a lien is a mechanism to secure debt - whether it's a construction mechanics lien, or a repairman's lien, or some other lien. Liens are not ways to get money back that was spent (whether appropriately or not), or to "get-back" at an unscrupulous party.

Generally, in the United States, freedom of contract prevails. Which means parties are allowed to contract for whatever they want, provided it's not against the law or against public policy. Price notwithstanding, whether an agreement between a dealership and a purchaser is a valid and enforceable agreement in a situation in which the purchaser was under the influence of medication, would likely come down to whether or not the purchaser had the capacity to agree to the contract. I hope you are able to figure this out successfully.
