Property Damage during Fios installation by contractor

recently, the fios cable to my home was re-laid. Unfortunately, the contractor who dug the trench for that work cut through 4 of my spinkler pipes and also damaged spinkler heads.

We saw this a week or so after the installation and spend a good deal of money to have it fixed (water was leakng into the gound and making the whole place soggy)

Since then, I have been given the run around by Verizon to handle the damage claim. Spoke multiple times to them, was transferred to 4 departments (in one call) and was finally paid a visit by a repair technician (a very nice man who said that this was really not his resposibility to resolve)

I am quite confused by the apparent inability of Repair, Billing, Customer Service and Sales to understand this and direct me to the right person at Verizon who could help.

Does anyone have any experiences and direction to give me?

many thanks
