Palmdale, CA asked in Insurance Bad Faith for California

Q: Just wanted to know if my evidence was enough to support my claim for damaged property. A grocery delivery woman from

walmart drove up the front yard that costed around 800 to renovate the whole yard broke, broke a sprinkler, ignored when my father and I were addressing the issue and just got a sorry sorry and left as she was leaving the groceries on the driveway. A minute after she left I took a couple pictures of the yard and the damaged sprinklers. Also a neighbor witnessed what happened.

A: Perhaps. You never know until you go to court. I suggest you send Walmart a written demand, certified mail, RRR, with your photos and the bills for the repairs or your estimates for the repairs, and give them 2 weeks to respond. After the 2 weeks is up, file in small claims. This is also Trespass, an intentional tort, and you can potentially get punitive damages. You need to sue the driver as well.
