Am I entitled to compensation regarding a construction accident that damaged my car?

Question Details: My car was damaged when construction scaffolding fell on it, dumping a load of bricks on my windshield. It was unable to be driven. The construction company is claiming that it is the fault of the scaffolding company. It seems as though the scaffolding company is unwilling to accept responsibility. It took a full week before I was told, verbally, that the construction company and scaffolding company are going to share the cost to repair the damage done to my car. In the meantime, I've lost 2 days of work and haven't had a vehicle since the incident took place.
