Outdoor Solar Lights – A Great Way To Reduce Your Risk Of Third-Party Lawsuits
If you’ve stayed in one place for many years, you can probably navigate every room in your house without any lights on. You would know the exact dimensions and be aware of the various spots where you have placed furniture and other objects.
You’ll know where to avoid because there’s a tile that creaks and you’ll know which door squeaks a lot. However, does this mean that you will assume that your guests can also walk the same way? It’s obvious that you’ll be lighting the way because they probably won’t even know which room leads where.
In such a scenario, why would you want to take the risk of not lighting your driveway? Remember, your house is not restricted to just the structure. The driveway, the porch, the garden and the boundary wall – it’s all included in the definition of your home. Why is this important?
Any visitor to your home will hold you liable for any damage caused by your negligence while the visitor is present in your home. This means that if you have placed something on top of your boundary wall and it falls on a stranger and causes injury, you will be liable. It is your duty to ensure that your belongings do not harm anyone.
Now, if your guest falls and breaks her ankle because you haven’t lit the driveway, do you think the court of law will listen to your reasoning and rationalization when it comes to energy bills? It is obvious that you will be asked to pay very high compensation due to your negligence.
Well now it has been determined beyond trial that you should install lights in your driveway. Which is the best option? Why don’t you opt for LED lights? These lights consume little energy and last a long time.
If you want an extra sparkle, just add another patch or area of lights and your job is done. You can configure as many patches as you like. You can have these lights buried within the ground so that they form a perimeter. Or, you can install them the same way you would install a standard light bulb for bright lighting throughout the house.
This simple precaution will help you avoid all the compensation and legal issues that would otherwise affect you if a guest is injured.
