Pipes under a driveway

We recently had a new driveway installed and the company destroyed our waste pipe accidentally causing thousands of pounds of damage. They are refusing all responsibility, saying that it was our responsibility to tell them we had clay pipes. Unfortunately, we didn't know we had clay pipes, but I think, since they are a driveway company, that is something they should've noticed or kept an eye out for, especially since they redid our manhole cover. Or am I wrong?

If they’ve redone your manhole cover then they’d have had a strong indication in the direction and depth of these pipes, therefore you would proceed with caution in this area.
