If the dog did actual damage to your home, then you can contact your own home insurer and see if you can make claim that way. If the dog damaged a fence or a garden, your only recourse is to call the authorities or an attorney if the neighbors will not cooperate.

AnswerIf you don't want to place a claim on your own insurance (and besides, you will have to pay for your deductible), try suing him in small claims court and then he can turn it over to his insurance company.

NO. Your neighbor is not liable for an act of nature that fells a tree. Your homeowners insurance will fix the damage to your property and the neighbors insurance would fix damage to the neighbors property. It does not matter who the tree belonged to.AnswerMaybe. It doesn't hurt to try if your neighbor will tell you who they are insured with. They are not obligated to do so. AnswerI'm not really sure. However, I do have a friend and his neighbor's house actually fell on top of his, but they considered it still standing and didn't give the full amount of the house's worth. AnswerYour own homeowner's insurance should cover this. If they think the neighbor is responsible, they will collect from his insurance company. In a hurricane a tree could have come from the next county - then how would you know whose tree it was? It depends on your state's laws, but most would consider this an act of nature and you are responsible for the damage caused by your neighbors tree. Call your insurance company, if you have a storm damage rider, this will most likely be covered.
