    Depends how badly damaged ... we chipped one next to a industrial job we were doing... after a half azzed attempt to patch it that I knew the guys would never get looking good enough for the guy I offered him $150.00 worth of plant material ..he took it. Last year another sidewalk was broken and we hired a guy to do it. Sometimes it's best to offer compensation and be done with it.

    I used to drive dump truck. We wouldn't cross over a sidewalk unless the person receiving the load signed a waiver on our bill of lading that absolved us of all responsibility for damage to sidewalks. Sidewalks just wern't built to take the load of a fully loaded tandem.

    The best way to deal with that is cut it at the joints and replace the section.
