With the somewhat sluggish economy, some of us may have put off some much needed household repairs. While this may seem not to be a big deal, if someone is injured on your property you may be held liable if they are injured while on your property.
Household hazards need not be something major like a hole in the roof or floor to pose a danger. A loose floorboard or an oil slick on the driveway may be enough to cause a slip that results in an injury and a claim against you.
As a property owner it is your legal responsibility to make a reasonable effort to ensure the safety of anyone on your property. Contact a local contractor you trust to ensure the repairs are done properly and that your home is safe from all foreseeable injuries. A few minor repairs now can alleviate a larger headache in the future.
