Greensboro, NC – (WiredPRNews.com) While many homeowners may not realize it, Premiere Tree Services of Greensboro is warning all homeowners that falling trees can quickly turn into a legal nightmare.
If you don’t properly maintain your trees or refuse to cut down dead ones you could be held legally responsible if the tree falls and causes damage to somebody else’s property. A neighbor or a neighbor’s insurance could sue you and argue that you are negligent for not maintaining trees or removing the dead tree.
To make matters worse there is a good chance that your insurance company won’t pay claims made over such a tree. This means could end up paying both the claim and the legal costs from your own pocket.
You could also be held liable if such a tree falls onto the power or telephone lines. The utility could sue you for the cost of replacing the line. Finally, if a tree falls into the street and blocks it, the local government could hold you liable and even bring legal charges against you.
To avoid these risks you should get visibly dead or dying trees cut down as soon as you notice them. That way you will not have to worry about paying for damage done by a falling tree.
It also goes without saying that you should be very careful when you cut down the tree. If you don’t get the tree removal done by professionals you could end up paying for damage caused by the tree you cut down.
