A while back I was having a delivery made by a timber yard and the lorry hit a wall of my property. This caused a bit of damage and some of the masonry has had to be repaired / replaced.
After speaking to a variety of people, the timber yard, the insurance people and now their loss adjustors I've now hit a brick wall! (Jimmy Tarbuck 1973).
The adjustor has offered a paltry sum that doesnt cover the cost of repairs and say the insurance company / timber yard have not yet confirmed if they accept liability but 'would be likely to do so if I accept the level of compensation that has been offered'.
Has anyone got any good advice on how to play this so I get enough of a payment to cover the cost of the remedial works?
