Did you obtain their insurance information and file a claim?

No, I did not. They said they would take care of it but they haven't and they are not answering my phone calls.

Thank you. No, you do not need an attorney for small claims court. Small claims court is set up for individuals to represent themselves. The clerk of court has the forms for you to fill out and file and you can do this, to start the process. You do want to just find out and get an estimate on the cost of repairs, so you know how much you need to ask the Judge to order, once you show they were at fault.
