Who is responsible for damages when my car is damaged by a powerline? Posted on June 02, 2011
My car was parked at a parking meter in the street when all the sudden the power line broke and dropped over my car. The car caught on fire and was totally burned before the fire department and police was able to put it out. There was a dead squirrel near by and the power company personnel claimed that the squirrel was responsible for the power line breakage. Who is responsible for the damage to my car? The city, the power company? Or the dead squirrel?
