Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
Your daughter hit a stationary object. Accordingly, in most cases she would be held liable. If this were to end up in court, in most instances I think the neighbor would win upon a simple showing that your daughter was driving, and that her car hit the mailbox.
However, there is an exception to the above: If your daughter can prove that the mailbox is particularly difficult to see, and that any ordinary person driving with reasonable care and skill would have hit it, then she may not be found liable. It would obviously be very helpful if there were other instances of the mailbox being hit by other drivers.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
