What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Ohio
Last Friday I was driving on I-70 East out of Columbus. As I was passing a semi with an attached trailer hauling a CAT, I noticed the dozer was caked with mud and debris. As I passed pieces were flying off and a rock struck my windshield and cracked it. The damage required the windshield to be replaced for $230 which was below the deductable on my insurance; so I paid out of pocket. I found a number for the company and have the truck and trailers license plate numbers. The number goes to some guys voicemail representing the company everytime I call. A small claims case would cost me $70, but I am not sure if it is even worth trying. I hear trucks aren't responsible for rocks coming up off the road and hitting windshields but this is different. However, how do I prove that? If there is a decent chance a small claims court will reimburse me, I would try.
