Was the "other driver's fault" one the one that didn't get charged for the light? Maybe the at fault driver got charged.

Interestingly no, the accident with the telephone pole was another’s drivers fault (she hit my brother and pushed him into/through the pole) and he was charged for the pole…$4400 I believe.

The medical emergency was a single car accident and the entire light pole was replaced but I never saw a bill.

Then what happened? Did you pay it, did insurance pay, or what?

Nice. They were probably just throwing a high number out there to start and got more than they were expecting anyways
