What type of insurance do you need?

The start of spring brings more attention to families spending time outside. Children are migrating from inside to the backyard playing in the sunshine. This change in routine offers a good opportunity to re-evaluate the safety and liability exposures in your backyard.

A popular backyard gathering place for children is the trampoline. Some insurance companies decline to write insurance policies for properties where trampolines are present. If you have a trampoline, avoid injury or a costly emergency for your own children or their neighborhood friends:

·         Make your children aware that the trampoline is to be used only when a responsible adult is present to supervise

·         Equip your trampoline with safety netting and protective padding. Sometimes the padding can get worn out in the weather, make sure you update it when needed

·         Position the trampoline in a clear space; avoiding trees, wires, pools, pergolas and sharp fence edges

·         Allow only one person at time to jump on the trampoline

Ask your insurance agent to help evaluate your own situation so that you can avoid the personal liability exposures associated with your backyard.
