With the weather warming up and people beginning to set up swimming pools, trampolines, and other outdoor equipment, Craig Swapp from Craig Swapp & Associates discusses liability and precautions homeowners should take to prevent accidents and minimize the risk of liability. He explains the “attractive nuisance doctrine” and how it might apply to your property, the responsibilities that come with it, and how it might apply to you if a child is hurt on your property.
In this interview, Craig Swapp also suggest checking your homeowner’s insurance to see which types of injuries and equipment are covered because you may be surprised that things like trampolines, are not. If something in your yard is dangerous and someone gets hurt, you can be held liable for the injuries. Craig Swapp also shares what steps homeowners and property owners should take if an accident or injury happens on the property. Find out what you can do to ensure your equipment, swimming pools, swing sets, and anything else in your yard are safe, as well as any steps you can take to protect yourself from a lawsuit if someone gets hurt.
