Is a service center legally responsible for damages to car?

Question Details: We took my girlfriend's car to a "reputable" service center to have the oil changed. They removed the air filter and asked if we wanted to have it changed there. I told them that we did not that it had already recently been changed. A month later, the car started shifting funny and idling rough. I took the the car to a dealership and found out that the air filter had not been put back into the car and had caused the problems that we were experiencing. Can we take the bill from the dealership to the service center and hae them reimburse us for the cost?
