During the winter season, high winds sometimes cause tree branches to fll or entire trees to collapse. When this occurs, the tree or tree branch may hit a vehicle.
In some cases, the vehicle damage will be covered by car insurance. However, if the driver is also injured when the tree hits the car, then that driver may or may not be able to sue for damages.
If the owner of the property where the tree fell previously knew that the tree might fall, then that owner may be sued for damages. The liability and extent of the damages often depend on the facts and circumstances of the case.
