    On a rainy day I drove into a plaza to go to a restaurant for breakfast. Since all of the pavement was went, I drove but hit a very deep pothole and bottomed out in a pot hole. Asked a tenant of the plaza for information on who owned the plaza. In speaking to him he repetitively told me to call my insurance company. I did only to be told he is liable. I could make a claim but rates would go up. He gave me the name of his management company and after talking to them...they also told me sorry....nothing we can do without his permission. I think k the area should have been marked as a precaution. Any recourse for them to pay for damages?

    No one USUALLY pays for anything, because you demand or ask.

    You want him or her to pay, you must first bring a lawsuit.

    Even if you prevail, you must then endeavor to collect on your judgment.

    The later being more difficult than the former.

    You can pay out of your pocket, file a claim with your insurer, bring a lawsuit, or do nothing.

    As you describe the incident, I don't see your success in a lawsuit.
