If anyone could give any advice it would really help me out, thank you.
Today my mum hired a skip and as it was being delivered the driver of the truck had to reverse into the driveway; doing so he drove over the inspection chamber/ manhole cover and with a huge crack he broke it into little pieces. The driver just shrugged, took the money and left leaving us with a hole so big someone could fall through it.
My mum then rang our water provider who said that as it was on private property we are held responsible for it and that they'd come have a look at it tomorrow.
Now the thing is my mum wants to charge the damages to the company who broke the cover, but I have no idea how to go about this. Is it even possible to do so? I have photographic proof that the driver was the one who broke it and that the cover was perfectly fine before he came along; would this be of any help at all?
Again any advice would be great, thanks.
