Resolved Question:

<p>Good evening. I understand your concern over this.   First, if you have insurance, you would want to contact your insurance carrier. Second, if you have no insurance, I would attempt to negotiate a settlement.....they are obviously asking for more than they are willing to settle for and filing a claim in small claims court is not a sure thing for them.   If you respond that you did nothing different and that even were they to win some kind of a judgment, you do not have the ability to pay the judgment, my bet is they will settle for an amount substantially less than they are asking.   If you can't settle it beforehand, then you will have to state your case in small claims court. </p><p>   </p><p><em>I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking.
