Neighbour caused damage

You are here:

Some tiles have been blown off my neighbour's house and smashed up my car. Surely it must be the neighbour's responsibility to pay up for the damage?

This is more a legal question than an insurance one! If you want to get your neighbour to pay for the damage you will have to prove that he/she was actually responsible for what happened, it is not enough that they owned the tiles. As this is a legal question you should consult an attorney to see how successful you are likely to be if you sue them. If you don't want the hassle of trying to get the money from your neighbour and you have comprehensive motor insurance, you might like to claim on your own policy - but read the answers to the questions about no claim bonuses and about excesses before you do.
