Sheds for All Scrap parts/metal from shed construction deliberately thrown over the fence of the work site and into my yard Houston Texas

 I did not hire this company, but the neighbor behind me did. My 15 yr old son was mowing our back yard and ran over a large piece of sharp metal that flew up into the motor, stalling it. The metal was cut from the end of a large drill piece (the large screw-like apparatus) drilled into the ground to stabilize the shed (×6). My son looked around on the ground and found two more just like it. He didn't see any more, so he kept mowing and ended up running over a 4th piece, which flew up and put a hole in my less- than-1-yr-old Snapper, self-propelled mower. Luckily, it only destroyed my mower, as it could have just as easily amputated or permanently disfigured my son's leg if it had gone an inch or two in another direction. These things are NOT small by any means. I went outside and found the last of the 5 metal pieces that were in my back yard, all found spread out right across the fence from where the shed was built a day ot two earlier. [continued below]....

..... Apparently, the Sheds for All employee casually threw them over the fence into my back yard... one by one as he worked... 5 of them!!

I confirmed with my neighbor that the pieces came from the large mounting screws that were drilled into the ground. We counted that 6 of these were used on the shed and realized a 6th piece had to be somewhere because only 5 were in my yard. We soon discovered it had been tossed into the yard of our other neighbor to his left. At least the employee was kind enough not to throw his beer bottle into my yard... (he left that by the shed). My neighbor was equally disgusted by this and kindly called the company for me so I could speak to someone and hopefully find a resolution for breaking my lawnmower, as well as the blatant negligence and endangerment of this employee's actions. I spoke to, I believe, the owner, George Martin. I explained the circumstances and results that followed, foolishly expecting that he would be shocked or upset to hear of this type of unethical practice by his employee, that he would immediately apologize and/or express concern for my son, etc..

That was not the case. In a condescending, inconvenienced tone, he impatiently blurts out, "so, how much does your mower cost?" I answered the question, and I expressed my anger at the possibility of my son or family being injured, mentioning that I wasn't sure what I was going to do as far as the negligence, etc., and he said "well, wait until you decide what your going to do, because there is no sense in me trying to be nice to you if...," and I cut him off... be nice to me??? He hadn't even taken the time to apologize. At this point, his tone was so rude and disrespectful that I just took his name and hung up. I can't believe a company this unethical, negligent, and dangerous is still allowed to be in business. It is inexcusable behavior! I intend on sending an invoice to Mr. Martin with pictures, etc., to be compensated for my lawnmower, but I just feel like there should be awareness about these kinds of actions, as well as accountability. I am just grateful that my son didn't get injured. The next person may not be so lucky.
