Lets see, hmm, no pictures so we can see what your talking about, and you hit the post with your car and you still want to know who to blame? Sounds strange.

No one here at this point even knows what your wall looks like, how it was construted, what local codes would have called for, what the wall is even made of, is it your home or a rental, no info to try and help you out here.

I think part of the reason for the little damage done to my car is cause of the mortor crumbling away and being more sand it a brick pillar

A little "tap" with 1 and a half, to 2 plus tons of force - is not a
"little tap".
Post some pictures!

What is a little tap? How much force is in a little Tap?


I have seen walls and trees blown down from a little wind
