Home Owners beware
If you own your home you may wonder who is responsible if a person is injured while on your property. Unfortunately, the answer often is that you are responsible for any injuries that occur. The weather has been mild but know doubt the colder temperatures are on their way, bringing snow and ice and slippery surfaces. The holiday season is joyous and a great opportunity to open your home to family and friends to share with. Enjoy the holidays and take proactive steps to make your home safe for your guests. Make sure your walkway and driveway are safe, shovel and apply salt if needed. Also if you will be hosting parties check for any hazardous conditions on your property, loose handrails, obstructions to your property or poor lighting. Duty of care is a homeowners responsibility.
Be safe and enjoy the holiday season!
