If you own property you have likely wondered to yourself or asked . . . “what happens if someone gets injured on my land?” It doesn’t matter if the guest was invited or a trespasser, if they are injured on your property and they decide to sue, you could be forced to pay exorbitant legal fees. Worse even, if you are found liable by a court, you could also be forced to pay for medical expenses. This may seem unlikely, especially in the case of trespassers since they have no right to your property.
However, as a landowner you have the legal responsibility of maintaining a reasonable level of safety and maintenance to your property. The good news is with a good risk management plan, there are ways to protect yourself from the legal action you may face as well as an undue financial burden! Our Vacant Land Liability Insurance program is the best way to protect yourself from scenarios like this one.
