UPS / driver damaged my house with truck and insurance will not pay

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

On June 3 2008 UPS made a delivery to my house. In the process of leaving the driver drove through the branches of a tree next to my house. It had been raining and the branches were hanging low. As he proceeded into the tree a branch snagged on his truck and also on an overhead wire. The wire was attached to the side of the house. The wire was ripped down and siding was pulled from the house. Liberty Mutual, their insurer refused to pay for the damages saying it was an act of "Nature". After contacting my lawyer, he told me it was useless to sue them in small claims court as they would have it moved to regular court and a team of their lawyers would put me through "***". Evidently this is the way they treat all claims against them.

    UPS just killed my dog in CA today...driver said did not know that he drove over my 80lb dog...who drives a vehicle and cannot feel when they hit a bump. My dog was left dead and crushed on my driveway for me to come home to and then bury in my yard...do not let these guys on your driveway.

    To the dog people, keep your dogs fenced in as you're supposed to for both your dogs and for other people. Courts will find you liable, not the drivers.

    To the branches person, same thing. If your branches are hanging over your driveway, too bad. It's your responsibility.

    UPS drops the package off 15 miles from my house, doesnt call and leaves a note in my mailbox about the package being delivered. Very frusterating, out of the last maybe 5 packages i've ordered, 4 were delivered to a store 15 miles from my house!

    Also, I just payed for the overnighter last Friday, and Well its monday about 1 pm and I still don't know where the heck my package is.
