It's called an act of nature. No one is liable for acts of nature. Simply submit a claim to your auto insurance. You'll be responsible for the deductible but they'll cover the rest.

There's a chance someone could be found At Fault if the tree was rotten, not rooted correctly, grossly overgrown or otherwise unstable enough to fall, but you'd have to prove that 1) the people responsible were aware of the problem and 2) they refused to fix the problem.

If a neighbor's tree falls on my house who is responsible?

If the tree was not dead already and clearly so then your insurance would pay for the damage to your house. A storm that causes the tree to fall is considered an "act of God" and the neighbor is therefore not responsible for the incident.

In Florida who is responsible if a dead tree falls from a vacant lot onto my property and damages my home and my insurance deductible is 1000 and damages were 300?

The owner of the vacant lot is responsible for the $300 worth of damage. Liability does not depend on whether the lot has improvements or not.

More than likely God is responsible for the storm that caused the tree limb to fall and damage the shed. Doesn't the landlord own the shed? If the shed belongs to you then you are responsible for repairing the shed. If it belongs to the landlord then he can decide whether or not he wants to repair it.

Ceiling falls in who is responsible for damage to renters property?

As a general rule, you are responsible for any damage to your property. However, if your landlord knew of problems with the ceiling but did not get them fixed promptly, he may be responsible for the damage to your property. Also, if the ceiling collapse was caused by faulty construction (i.e. the ceiling did not comply with local building codes), you would be able to sue your landlord for failing to keep the property up to building code. Finally, since landlord-tenant laws vary from state to state, your state may have a specific law that holds your landlord responsible for the damage. You should immediately see a tenant's rights agency or landlord-tenant attorney who can review your specific situation.

Is trucking company responsible if a stone falls from a truck and cracks your car windshield even though a little sign on the truck says they are not?

Depends! The sign states, "not responsible for objects coming from the roadway." This means if they run something over or a rock. etc. is flown into your vehicle from their tires, they are not responsible. All persons are required by law to make sure that any load that is being transported is secured. The hard part is proving that what damaged your vehicle came from that truck.

Is the county responsible if a tree falls on your property and its on county property?

Nobody is liable for an act of nature. It does not matter who owned the tree. If a tree falls on your house just call your insurance company. If it just fell in your yard and did not damage your property you just have to get it removed yourself. If it's partially on your property and partially on the property of another, then each property owner is responsible for removing that part on their own property.
