When there is construction, is it the city's responsibility or the landlord's to pay for damages to a vehicle?

Question Details: My boyfriend was pulling into his apartment complex and there is usually a dip in front of the driveway that he takes at an angle to not scratch or damage his car. This time, instead of scraping, his entire bumper came off. He went to the complex manager and she said that it "wasn't their problem" and that "it's the city's" problem. Who should take responsibility? Who should he sue?
