Good question. Given the fact that the claim against you for a broken windshield is by a neighbor of yours and you want to maintain peace in the neighborhood most likely, I would have a face to face meeting with the neighbor about the situation to discuss why he believes you are responsible for his broken windshield allegedly caused by your illegal fireworks.

I wouls ask him to provide proof for his claims so that you can discuss his claim with your insurance acrrier assuming you have one. Most likely his claims will be solely claims with nothing concrete to support his accustations. If he has proof, then you consider his position a little bit more seriously.
