You are liable for road repairs only if you damaged the road through carelessness or negligence. The town would have to have a professional estimate of the cost of repairs. $2,500 sounds extremely high just for a short run of blacktop filler. Demand proof and contact your insurance carrier.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, I would appreciate a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated. Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
