Yes, the law can help you, but you will have to come up with some way to help yourself first.

The problem that I see is that, other than the same color paint, you have little or no PROOF that the damage was done in their yard by their workers. This will become a "he says, you say" issue, and YOU have the burden of proof.

My suggestion would be to turn it into your insurance company and let them investigate and subrogate if needed. If you don't have insurance, then you will have to come up with some way to substantiate your claim that they did the damage. And yes, your friends testimony might help.
