Hello, different expert here.. Your recourse is to get an estimate for the cost or replacing the window and then file a small claims lawsuit against the neighbor for your damages. If he doesn't want to involve his homeowner's insurance, then he can pay you out of pocket.

.

You can sue him for up to $3,000 in small claims court and don't need an attorney. You would complete the summons and complaint forms that the clerks give you and then file them. The clerks will help to get the summons served by the sheriff on the neighbor to force them to come to court and defend.

.

But it is likely that once he is served with a summons, he will just contact you and settle. If he does, make sure he also reimburses you for any court filing fees as well as your window damages.

.

thanks

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.

I wanted to seek your advice on a car accident my colleague
I wanted to seek your advice on a car accident my colleague and I was in on 2/7 in Kokomo, IN. We were in the area for work and were broadsided by another vehicle that ran a red light. We had 2 eyewitnesses that supported the claim, 1 of which was not able to stay until the police arrived on the scene but her information was submitted to the investigating officer.The police report does not support our claim and has me cited as failing to yield with mass amounts of speculation including dismissing the eyewitness' claim of the other vehicle running the red light. The only injuries were to my passenger/colleague who suffered 3 broken ribs. We are both residents of Michigan and the car was my personal vehicle.I have spoken to the officer about the missing witness information since and he claimed to have called the witness 3 times later that evening w/o response and then threw her information away.My insurance company has been attempting to contact the other eyewitness that was included on the report but are not having any luck so far. Based on their feedback my insurance company is not going to push for any liability and stick the the police report unless they receive feedback from the witnesses.In your opinion do you think we have case to overturn the police report and cite the other driver along with collecting damages for injuries and distress? Thank you in advance for your feedback and assistance. … read more
