If you have the relevant insurance (e.g. comprehensive), the best thing to do is to submit a claim to your insurer (that's why you have insurance, after all), get compensation from them, and let them seek reimbursement (if they want) from the towing company/driver.
If you don't have the relevant insurance, your only recourse is to sue the towing company and driver for the damage they did; if you can prove by a "preponderance of the evidence" (that it is more likely than not) that they caused the damage, you can get a judgment ordering them to pay compensation. Suing in small claims court, as your own attorney, may be a good option.
