There is a house being built next door to me. The contractors damaged my car. I spoke to the builder and at first they said they would take care of it and now they are saying it's the subcontractor's responsibility. All they will give me is a first name and phone number of said contractor and of course no one will answer the number. It is a large builder in the area and I just want my car fixed. Is there anything I can do?
This is not a lemon law case. Contact your auto carrier.
If you want to sue someone you sue both. It takes time and money.

If you have auto coverage for the damage and it exceeds your deductible, you could file an insurance claim and let your insurer go after the builder and subcontractor for your deductible and its money. You could also sue the builder (in justice court if the damage is less than $10,000) and let it pursue the subcontractor if it wants.

I would take this problem to small claims court where the clerk concert you in the right direction. Name both the contractor and subcontractor. They will straighten themselves out
