AT&T U-verse installed equipments at my primary residence by accident while trespassing my property during installation.
The technician damaged my property by drilling a hole on the left side of my house thru the garage to run the cables. After he acknowledged it was a wrong home, he quickly removed the cable and left my property with the AT&T boxes still mounted from the outside of the house.
You should take pictures of the damage caused and of the mounted boxes. Contact AT&T to alert them of the issue and request information on how they intend to repair and compensate you for the damage. If possible, communicate with AT&T in writing to preserve the date of your notice to them and the contents of their responses to you. You should also speak with an attorney about your rights as a property owner, even if it's just a consultation.
I agree with attorney Zeigler. Document and notify them of the damage. You could always ask for a coupon for your troubles because it was gravely disturbing having them trespass, not to mention, keeping the box they left is good evidence it sounds. good luck.
