Sam :

I am sorry to hear of this situation.

Sam :

I suggest you will want to find out who the owner of the lot is and write a letter with a copy of the estimates and make a request for payment. However, you need to read any disclaimers they may have about parking on the lot and not being responsible for the damages

Sam :

So you may also want to contact your auto insurance company and see what they suggest as to how to get the parking lot to pay for the damage.

I did send them a letter , aon parking sent back said there not responsable. the disclaimer didnt say any thing about bird damage , just about stolen property and auto damage due to other vehicles.. I did all that already. the parking lot rep said they are a eviromental freindly and they had several complaints about birds. I sent pics and estimate for $839.
