How Accidents Happen

  • Unmarked hazards
  • Improper maintenance (broken steps, loose hand railings, etc.)
  • Improper fencing, especially in cases involving
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents

Your Safety Matters

Many people worry about whether they will have to take legal action against a friend or neighbor if they sustain a serious injury on their property. The reality is most homeowners have insurance. And as part of that coverage, many policies include personal liability coverage, which includes compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other accident-related expenses.

But just because someone has such coverage does not guarantee that you will automatically receive the compensation you deserve for your injury. In many cases, even if the homeowner admits responsibility, the insurance company could be a problem. That's because many insurance companies do everything they can to reduce or deny accident claims altogether.
