Afraid it's a stupid question. Missouri, I filed a complaint

Customer Question
Afraid it's a stupid question. JA...
Afraid it's a stupid question.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Missouri
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I filed a complaint with the city.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Again... May be a stupid question. It's about whether the city or the company the city hired... should cover damage to my personal property. Does that help?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If the city hired a contractor to do work, the contractor is liable to you for the damages to your vehicle. The city is liable to provide you the information regarding the contractor and you need to contact the contractor to notify them of the damage. If the contractor fails to respond, then the contractor is the party you sue for the damages, as the contractor is liable. In city contracts, the contractors sign an indemnification waiver and have to post an insurance bond, which means they agree to take on all liability for damages they cause. So you need to sue the company for your damages.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
