Did someone at ABW push my neighbor's tree on me last night?

Tree Pics

Almost got me and my PC. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

(ps, the 3 pics are fairly large file size because I'm too lazy to reduce them)

CK....yikes.....you know, there is always a bright side to everything...that tree could have been 10 ft closer...probably scary, none-the-less....Does your neighbor have insurance? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

Yeah they called their insurance, but no one showed up today. I went a head and cut away enough of the tree so I could fix the fence.
(my dogs needed to go outside)
The fence is now as good as used.

Now I'm waiting for that other tree to fall. It's looking like it could go any time right now. That one will take out another section of fence and the kids play center if that one goes.

ps. I was in that room on my PC when it fell. Actually on Blue Room chat. That chat room is dangerous - just ask MouseJockey.

I would say that more than that one look like they are ready to come down...Don't know exactly where you are located, but the recent drought will cause problems like that...wait until we get a bunch of rain (if we do) this spring/summer...after a dry winter, then lots of rain, it will cause trees to go right over....

CK, Jeeez it looks like our house last Christmas. We had 2 trees come down about 10 days before Christmas. Totaled 2 cars and broke the bay window in the living room. Ripped all my xmas lights down off the roof a day after I put them up. Did get a pretty good settlement though. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif> I'll have to find them pics.

The worse thing is is that I was on my computer in the dinningroom and saw it come right at me and then swing to the left a little. It's been windier than hell here since yesterday. I hope it settles down soon or my last tree in the yard might be heading towards me. Good luck with the clean up. I'm glad it wasn't worse.

CK, isn't that the luck though lmao. I think that was the first year ever that I tested the lights and they all worked even after I hung them on the roof they still worked. Well for a day anyways. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

Thats kind of like you test the tree lights and they all work so you put them on the tree and plug them in and they look great. Now you put the bulbs, tinsel and all the other stuff on. K, time to see how it looks. Plug the lights in and nothing.

My neighbors insurance says it's my insurance's responsibility to fix things and my insurance says it my neighbor's insurance responsibility.

Kind of reminds me of CJ and the merchants arguing over who's fault a tracking problem is.

How can two insurers know what the other insurance companies responsibility is - unless 1) Its the same insurance company, or 2) They are in it up to their necks, together?

Your insurance company should cover the damage to your home no matter what. It is what you pay them for. If they feel they can recover from the neighbor, it is their duty to go after them.

Did you call the Insurance company or do you have an agent? An agent will want you to go after your neighbor's insurance company and not even put a claim on your policy because he gets a bigger bonus if his book of business with the company is Profitable. If your insurance company give you problems, come renewal time..Drop them!!!

If it were me, I would *not* put in a claim with my insurance company - the tree was obviously your neighbor's tree that fell and did damage to your property ... would seem to me that it's their responsiblity (and their insurance company's) to fix the damage to your property ...

If you call in and make a claim on your insurance - it puts a "mark" on your record - too many claims and your company does not have to renew you .... Save your insurance for the big things - like should your house happen to burn to the ground, or your plumbing breaks and ruins the whole inside of your house (happened to my neigbor last week, had water seeping out of her outlets and her kitchen ceiling fell in) - and don't use it for the little things that you can take care of yourself, or that someone else should be responsible for ...

While I agree with Flyman that it is about profitablity, making several small claims is not worth the risk of higher premiums and losing your insurance ... If you put a claim in (be it homeowners or auto) for every small thing that comes along that may be covered under your insurance you not only risk your rates increasing because of claims, but you risk non-renewal...

Let's see on one hand you have the neighbors insurance with all their lawyers only interested in screwing you over and on the other hand you have your own insurance with their lawyers who only want to make sure you get what you deserve. Hmmmm decisions decisions. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Cut the tree into firewood and put an and in you local paper - Firewood Cheap X dollars per cord. You pick it up.

Use the money to sue file a small claims deal against the neighbor and their insurance company.

In Michigan are property lines go straight up. Now was it your side of the tree that did the damage?
With that said I wish those airplanes would stay off my property.
