What relief could reasonably be expected from a car dealership due to admitted negligence at the time of maintenance?

Question Details: My vehicle had a required maintenance, oil change etc., however the service department left the oil plan drain plug off or left it loose. The vehicle lost all oil pressure on the interstate in LA. It was a Sunday and no dealership was available. My personal insurance towed my vehicle and stored it until it could be towed to dealership in MS. I am requesting an inspection and services that would ensure my vehicle motor is not damaged due to negligence. My loss of work and value of the vehicle is also an issue. My insurer's roadside assistance also covered the cost that the dealership offerd to pay. The vehicle is covered by a prepaid maintenance package that would also cover such damage.
