I was inspecting my bike today after finishing it's spring maintenance and was disgusted to find a cut in my rear tire. It's a cut about 1" long that goes in at an angle and cut a flap 1/2" long on the slant about 3/16" deep through the face of the tread. Don't have time to order a new tire so will have to procure one at whatever price I can find around here. What a bummer, seven thousand miles on the tire I put on about last fall, looked like it could have gone anotherseven.

Byron,
That is on your neighbor. He is the one who is liable for damage caused by one of his contractors who damaged your vehicle while on his property.

Go have him make a claim for the damage with his homeowners insurance if he has it, otherwise make a claim with him directly.
His lawnmowing contractor is his problem, not yours.

No, I'm not an attourney and this is not legal advice.

That's why you gotta stop and confront them right then and there while the guy is still on the property with the machine. Get names and IDs, the whole deal just like it was a vehicle accident.

Byron I am sorry to hear about the misfortune. I had something similar to happen to me and the weasel tried to squirm-out of paying for the damages.

My neighbor's tree service dropped a limb on my new fence. I didn't realize the damage had occurred until two days, later since it was at the rear of the yard.

I kept my cool when taking to them about repairs even though I wanted to explode. Finally they repaired the damaged section. As was mention, I would direct my attention to the neighbor and their being liable for damages.

Keep on Winging

I'm not a lawyer, I don't play one on TV and I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I believe that in Maryland, contractors are required to carry insurance to cover situations like yours. Other, more liberal states may vary.
