Default [Q] Help - I fried My S3

Ok, let me start with what I did. I plugged my S3 into my car, via the micro usb, and when I did, the screen went black. Tried using the power button, but to no avail. S3 would not turn on, no led, no boot up, Nothing. Took S3 to local phone repair shop and the informed me that the motherboard / main board was shorted out in two places. What caused that?

My real question is, since they said they could not repair my S3, what are my options for getting it repaired? Send to Samsung? Are there other repair shops that can fix my S3?

Thanks in advance for any help and advice given.
