Ensuring Your Home Stays Safe And Accident Free

When was the last time you stopped and looked around your house, both inside and out, at all the little repair jobs that need to be done? Some are cosmetic of course, but some are actually just an accident waiting to happen. It could be you that trips over that uneven concrete on your walkway, or it may be the mailman. You could in fact be running the risk of having a premises liability suit filed against you.

In order to keep your home safe for you and others, we've come up with a list of common problem spots in your home that you can keep an eye on.

Your Driveway/Walkway

Take a good look outside at your walkway and driveway and ask these questions:

•- Are there uneven spots in your walkway or driveway that a person could potentially trip over

•- Do you have any potholes in your driveway

•- Are there any uneven bricks, or stones that people walk on

•- Is the area well-lit for nighttime

•- Are the shrubs/bushes so overgrown that they infringe on the walkway

•- Are the stairs to your home kept clear of debris

•- Are the stairs wobbly or uneven

•- Do you have any water features that cause water to gather and possibly cause slip/fall

Even if you answer yes to only one of the questions above, you'll want to fix the item right away so as to not risk injuring yourself or others. Keep in mind if there is anything dangerous about your property and then someone gets hurt as a result, you're the one who is responsible.

Inside the Home

Many of the same principals exist when you look around inside your home. You are basically searching for things that could cause a potential problem. Here are some things to watch for.

•- Damaged or uneven stairs

•- A missing handrail on the stairs, causing someone to fall

•- A water leak that hasn't been fixed and causes water to pool

•- A light fixture that isn't in place firmly

Use a Critical Eye

As you walk around inside your home, and around your outdoor space be sure to use a critical eye and see everything for what it really is. It's up to you to protect yourself and those who enter your home.
