Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs. Thank you for your patience as I review the question. I will post my response shortly.
Was there any prior evidence to indicate the tree was diseased or in danger of falling?
Thank you for the additional information. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
Unfortunately, without any knowledge that the tree was going to fall there is no negligence on your employer's part, and negligence is what is required for liability to you.
The damage is your responsibility.
I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise.
