Peterborough, NH asked in Personal Injury for New Hampshire

Q: We had a bad storm. My neighbor claims that my tree caused electrical damage in his house. I didn't know about the tree.

I called my Insurance Company. They said I wasn't responsible for something I could not predict during a storm. Now he sent me a small claims bill for damage. It's over $3000 . Am I legally supposed to pay that?

A: A New Hampshire attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It might be difficult for attorneys here to offer guidance based on these limited details. One option is for you to review your policy and form your interpretation of what it should cover - another option is to try to arrange a brief consult with a New Hampshire attorney to review the policy with the benefit of their property & casualty claims experience, and see what they might propose as your best options here. Good luck
