Endsleigh specialise in Home Contents Insurance for people in the UK

Scary thought….

Diary, Insurance

I just read this thread on a board I frequent:

Basically, some poor historic home owner was giving a tour of of his place to some of his coworkers. One woman tripped on a step, and is now suing him. The poor guy. Let’s hope he has more than the lovely “hazard insurance” we’ve got. Makes me think twice about letting anyone in the door…. we’ve got safety hazards galore! Soon enough we’ll have real insurance though, and it’s not tour-worthy yet anyway.

Maybe we should post an “Enter at your own risk” sign at the front door?!

While researching our home’s history I found a newspaper article about the previous owner’s mother falling down the stairs and breaking her hip!

What an awful story. I don’t think that paying someone’s medical bills, or offering to pay those bills, can ever be used as evidence of fault in a neglience suit. The court won’t allow anyone to say who paid the bills. So, at least we all don’t have to worry that paying the bills and being a nice person is going to hurt if some $^#% files a suit.

My goodness, I just can’t understand why so many people don’t take responsibility for their own actions anymore. We had a swimming pool growing up, and my dad was always paranoid about our liability.
