Property Damage; who pays?
I am the director of a child care center in Evansville, Indiana. We recently hired a fencing company to install a new fence to surround our playground, they promised to have to done by a certain date in order to protect our playground from a neighborhood bar which was scheduled to have their annual block party. The fence was not completed, not even by a fraction because of employees failing to show up to work. Because our playground was not protected by a fence, we suffered damage to equipment caused by patrons of the block party. Who is liable for the damages and what can we do to get the money to replace the items?
