The danger of drowning and premises liability

There is a higher risk of drowning in the summer because lakes and swimming pools are more attractive in hotter weather. However, numerous adults and children drown each year in private and public swimming areas. In California, drowning is the primary cause of death for children 4 and younger. Swimmers may reduce their risk for drowning by learning about myths and avoiding common scenarios for drownings.

Premises liability issues for airports

Californians who fly their own airplanes should be aware of insurance coverage options for airport premises. Most businesses and individuals leasing property on airport grounds or in hangars are required to carry liability insurance that protects against negligence. Such contracts typically refer to general, public and premises liability in addition to the liability of tenants and owners. While all parties are responsible for their own actions, signed liability agreements can result in confused responsibility.
