If you own a residential or commercial property, it is important to remember that you are liable for the safety of those on your property. If someone was injured in a situation you could have prevented (example: if you were made aware a tree was rotting or dead, and could be dangerous but chose to do nothing about it), the injured party may be entitled to compensation.
