Homeowner Liability and Safety

A home can be a place of refuge from the daily stresses of life, but keeping a safe and nurturing home takes a fair degree of work. Homeowners have a responsibility to keep the physical structure of their home sound by monitoring heating systems and carbon monoxide levels. Homes with pools and spas must also take additional precautions to avoid harmful chemical imbalances or drowning deaths, and often are required by law to have a fence and/or protective pool cover. When guests (sometimes uninvited guests) injure themselves on your property, such as slipping and falling on an icy walkway, they can sue for monetary damages.
