Liability In Car Accidents Involving Falling Trees
Cities have a responsibility to check the trees on the property for defects. If a city knew (or should have known) that a tree was in a dangerous condition they could face civil liability if anyone is injured. Trees deteriorate over time. This can be do to disease, insects or environmental factors. A certified arborist should periodically check a city’s trees to make sure they are healthy.
Any person that is injured in an accident involving a falling tree may be able to recover damages through a personal injury claim. Damages in a personal injury claim can include financial compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A premises liability attorney can evaluate all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
