Statutes may vary from state-to-state, but if the "Damage" was from "general wear-and-tear" (Track marks from construction trucks, divots from same, gravel kicked around) the this would not be something he could go after you for. Best advice: he did you a favor by allowing you to build the fence? Be neighborly and chip in to help fix the drive.

Well,, It's your fence, and was your work or workers who did the build. Your neighbor may have given permission to put up the fence but they likely did not give you permission to damage their property. so I would say you are responsible for the damage caused to another person or property.

Who is legally responsible if a tree falls on a neighbor's fence?

The neighbor is responsible for his own property. If your tree fell on his house, he is responsible for the damage. That is how homeowners insurance works. * No one is "legally" responsible if it was a result of a natural occurrance. The neighbor whose tree fell and damaged the other person's property cannot be held accountable for a situation that was not in his or her control. If the tree fell as a result of a storm, the person whose property was damaged should claim it on their homeowner's insurance is possible. If it fell and damaged property due to it being trimmed or removed, the liability lies with the person who was taking the action. It would be a nice gesture if the neighbor who owned the tree agreed to share the damage cost, but in the majority of cases he or she cannot be held legally liable.
