Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I hope this message finds you well.
Unfortunately, there is likely not a course of action to be paid for the damages if the logs were on their property or unless you could show that there was a substantial likelihood of this occurring. You, in the later circumstance, would have to show that they presented an undue hazard that they should have known would cause this type of damage.
In other words, it would be really hard to prove a case against them if the logs were actually on their property.
Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Please rate my answer positively as well (three or more stars).
By the way, I have been involved as a licensed attorney in litigation matters for over a dozen years.
I wish I had better news here, but it is the reality of the situation.
Best wishes going forward!
