So I was biking home from work last night and was hit by a fence. It was very windy and a portion of the fence at Grand St. and Center St. in Manhattan blew over onto me. I'm mostly fine, a little bruised but annoyed because it tore my fancy rain jacket. I know I'm going to get a lot of IANAL responses but I wanted to see if anyone had suggestions of things I could do to possibly be remunerated for the jacket by the city.
Here's a picture of the bloodthirsty fence after I extricated myself and my bike from it.
Any advice much appreciated.

Was hit by a truck whilst riding on my bike at night. Didn't have my light on. There is talk of compensation/suing. Need some advice...(slightly long story) [more inside]

I got hit by a car on a bicycle while carrying a laptop. Bicycle & laptop are busted, but thankfully I'm not. What do I do now, legally speaking? [more inside]
