Your Legal Duties to Trick-or-Treaters [WBBM News Radio]
With Halloween soon approaching, people are decorating their homes, preparing costumes and planning on giving sweets to trick-or-treaters. So, now is a good time to also think about preventing any lawsuits that could come knocking at your door.
Remember to clear off your lawn, patch any holes in your sidewalks and put away decorations that could be lawn hazards. Trick-or-treaters are your guests and you have a legal duty to make your property safe for them. Make sure your yard doesn’t set the stage for a trip-and-fall accident. You don’t want a litigation nightmare this Halloween.
