Accidents are a normal part of life, but some people are quick to point fingers about who caused the accident in an attempt to get a monetary settlement. Having to shell out money for a premises liability claim is something that most property owners don’t want to do. In fact, some just simply can’t afford to have to pay out huge sums of money at all. Even for those who have insurance, the increased premium rate after a claim is made can sometimes spell disaster.
If you have someone trying to blame you for an accident that occurred on your property, protecting your interests is a paramount concern.
