    Answered . If you have comprehensive coverage for your car, your auto insurer is probably the primary responsible carrier. I would submit the claim to them. If they don't pay, then I would submit the claim to the neighbor's homeowner's policy. I don't know what your homeowner's policy says, but I there may be an exclusion since it's your car.

    Best of luck.

    Answered . The first attorney was correct. Submit this to your auto insurer, which ought to cover it. If there is a problem, submit this to your neighbor's homeowner's insurer. Between the two, you should get covered.
