Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am an attorney with more than 25 years experience and look forward to assisting you with this matter today.
First, I suggest you will want to take the estimate to get the job complete and mail it to the company's owner with a letter requesting he make arrangements to pay for it.
In essence, in the letter state something like
Enclosed is a copy of the estimate to repair the back window of my vehicle. As we discussed, your employee was responsible for this damage while weed whacking on such and such date at such and such time
I would appreciate your immediate attention in getting this money to me so I can get this repaired. Otherwise, I will get it repaired and then have no other choice but to bring this matter to small claims court where I will claim in addition to the cost of repair any legal fees that may ensue.
I hope that is not necessary.
Mail this letter certified with a return receipt requested
