‘My son was helping his grandmother move when he backed into a gas meter and knocked it down. They found out who did it and sent me a bill for 1200 dollars. Do I have to pay this?’
If your son is under 18, then the odds are quite good that you (or your insurance company) can be found to be responsible for paying for the damage done to the gas meter when your son backed the car into it. If he is 18 or over, then he would likely be responsible. The way you word this, however, leads one to wonder: if not your son, or you if he is under 18, then who do you think *should* be responsible for it?
