I'm in the process of finding a lawyer who can help me recover damages after a publicly owned tree fell onto my house.
To be as brief as possible..A Town tree fell on my house causing major damage. Two months prior the gas company installed a new gas pipe and cut out the entire root system on one side of the tree. The pipe was less than a foot from the tree. Just curious if we can sue for damages? The tree was town owned. The town also claims The utility company needs to call them in situations like mine.
Please let me know what you think..
