Can I sue for the damage done to my vehicle in an accident and the inconvenience it has caused?
I had been to a supermarket close to my residence. I had parked my vehicle out in the parking lot of the supermarket. While shopping, I heard glass shatter accompanied with a loud thump. Everyone in the mart ran out to the parking lot. A customer who was backing out of the parking lot had rammed into one of the lamp posts and toppled it. The lamp post landed on the roof of my vehicle and shattered the rear windshield. My car is the only mode of commuting to and fro from work. Since the vehicle is at the workshop for repairs, I am compelled to commute using public transport for over forty miles a day. The commute is tedious and a huge personal inconvenience. Can I sue the person who caused the damages and for the inconvenience that has been caused?11/09/2016 | Category: Personal Injury | State: ALL | #26479
