I hate to tell them, but if the tree is GROWING on their side of the property line then they ARE responsible for trimming it back. At least, where I live they would be.

You don't even have to live in America to want to sue them for that. It's their tree, it smashed OP's car and they are claiming they don't have to pay for it. (which is BS) Now, if it had done something like knock over OP's mailbox but not cause any real damage to property...then you would need to be an American to sue for it. (I say this being an American that has been sued for over $3K for leaving a scratch about the length of a dime on some bitche's bumper.)

How is insurance coverage relevant? I had something similar happen where the other party claimed they weren't responsible because their insurance didn't cover it. By that reasoning I can just cancel all my insurance and claim I'm not responsible for any damage I cause. OP get legal advice, in most countries your neighbours are most definitely responsible for damage caused by THEIR tree.

if the tree blew over in a storm it's considered an 'act of God' and they aren't responsible for it. if the city told them that the tree was unsafe and had to come down, then they would be found negligent and would be responsible. I had a coworker go through the same shit. Your own homeowners insurance might cover it though.

If the tree grew into the OP's yard wether from above or below, it is the tree owner's responsibility. Not sure if it is if the tree fell from the neighbor's yard though.

97, thats offensive. i am a 14 year old teen with braces and acne and im probably smarter than you in some ways than others. (that does not include video games because i am not stupid enough to waste my time and money on things that do not help me in life).

145- anyone can TRY to prove someone's theories wrong. I could try to prove that gravity does not exist on earth; still doesn't make me smart. actually that would make me stupid.

And if you knew anything about Autism, you would realize that they aren't stupid, and they find a specific subject that they are incredibly interested in and learn every single tiny fact that ever existed about that subject, and recall all that information extremely easily. However, they do have a hard time learning other subjects, including social skills.

A tree that obviously needs to be taken down, i.e. neglected, falling on a neighbor's property is the responsibility of the tree owner, regardless of if it happened during a storm and especially if the tree owner had been warned about its precariousness. If a healthy tree is taken down by an act of God, it is the neighbor's responsibility.
