As a former insurance adjuster, I'm almost positive that your homeowner's policy will not pay for this type of loss. Perhaps, the owner of the wall (i assume that it's your neighbors wall) has liability coverage and if you can show that they failed to act in a reasonable manner to maintain the wall, they might cover removing the debris from your property.

I am an attorney in Decatur, so feel free to give me a call.  This is not my specific area of expertise, but I know enough about these issues that I may be able to handle it.  If not, I know some other very good local attorneys to whom I can refer you.   

Depending on exactly where the property line runs, you may be able to file a claim against the neighbor's insurance and have them pay to repair it. If not, then we can try to talk to the neighbor and see if they will voluntarily accept responsibility for the cost of repairs.  Otherwise, it may be lawsuit time.

Here's my contact info if you'd like to give me a call:
