Overgrown trees can be dangerous to those who are traveling nearby. A sizable tree branch falling from great heights can even kill a person. If you are a driver whose vehicle was damaged by a fallen tree branch, can you file a claim against the owner of the tree? The answer is yes, you can. Even if you are uninjured, if your vehicle was damaged due to the incident you can claim economic damages due to negligence from the tree owner.
