Check your dealership work

Well today I went to do a little xmas shopping. I went in the store, come out turn the key over and my motor dont turn over but the starter just spins and screams. I had no idea what was going on at first because i just left the house and it started fine. I crawled under to look and my starter is hanging on by two bolt that are about to fall out . The only time anybody has ever been in the area of the starter is when I got hit and the dealership was under there to fix everything. I also had two leaks around my fuel filter because they busted an o-ring once and they were to lazy to tighten it up all the way the other time. I just wanted to share my pain wirh yall haha and tell everybody to make sure everything is tightened back up if you take it to the dealer.
