Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did A know it was no entry?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes, she lives in the next street and stated she should have known better but she just woke up. Her insurance is only willing to foot 70% though

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I think in that case 70% liability is fair. Even if it went to Court no lawyer will tell you that you have more than a 60% chance of winning, which means 4 out of 10 people in exactly your position will lose. I would have said around 70-80% myself so this is within the range.
I was going to say its 50/50 but bearing in mind she lives there 70% is not unreasonable. Any higher and you increase the litigation risk and could lose 100%.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
