A roof tile fell on to my CLK cabrio from neighbours' roof last week in the gales. It hit and dented the A pillar then scratched the passenger door glass, dented the door and trim and some more slid down the length of the bonnet.

Is it right that I have to pay for all this. (rhetorical question). My excess is £75 for the glass which I have just had done today and £400 for repairs.

So I have to pay at least £475 for something that is not my fault. I know the insurance will pay but it still costs me the excess.

Oh well.

Your neighbors home owners insurance should cover the entire expense, at least in the US.
