Winter can be a time for many fun activities. From sledding to skiing to ice skating, the cold weather can help create the scene for these enjoyable outdoor memories.
However, the snow and ice can also create hazardous conditions. For example, they can lead to slip and fall injuries occurring on your property. These accidents could then result in costly medical bills or lawsuits. Securing liability insurance could offer you financial protection if these unfortunate events arise. The agents at Heritage Insurance can discuss your potential exposures and assist you in finding insurance that meets your needs. Contact us today for more information.
Liability insurance may provide coverage in the event you are deemed responsible for someone’s bodily injury on your property. For example, if your sidewalk remains uncleared for an unreasonable amount of time after a winter storm, and an individual slips and falls while walking on it, you may be held liable for the injuries sustained. Having liability insurance may help pay for the medical expenses that arise from these situations. It may also help pay for legal fees, including court costs, settlements and judgments.
Depending on whether you seek personal insurance or commercial insurance, different types of liability coverages are available. Additionally, securing umbrella insurance can add another layer of financial protection as it can provide coverage if a claim exceeds your liability policy’s limits. The agents at Heritage Insurance can discuss these options with you and review deductibles, exclusions and limits.
While determining legal liability is up to the court system, risk management techniques can help reduce the risk of injuries. For instance, some ways to reduce your exposures may include:
