If that tree branch lands on your neighbors house or car Kelly says you can be at fault. “If you have a tree that looks like it’s dying – you know it’s dead you just haven’t gotten around to fixing it, which we’ve heard of many times – if that big branch falls off from your property and falls on a car, or falls on the roof of your neighbors for example, and that was under your own control because it was on your property, and that is typically the responsibility of the homeowner whose tree it was,” Kelly says.
In this situation a lawyer, can help deal with the insurance company and answer any questions you may have. When you start thinking about all the things that can go wrong at your home, it can start to become overwhelming, that’s why Kelly suggests frequent home inspections.
