A: It could be a difficult case to prove. The time and cost of surveying/measuring the curb cuts for the driveway, and presenting in a credible and impartial manner to the court could run more than the heat shield replacement. And the delays resulting from pursuing a legal course of action, as opposed to promptly replacing the heat shield, could create a potential fire hazard. You could check with local attorneys to see how they view the matter. Good luck
