We’ve had beautiful, sunny weather and mild temperatures throughout February … springtime in Louisville is now just weeks away! Unfortunately, that also means the threat of severe weather is near.

Based on the tornadoes we had in January, a lot of us wonder what’s in store in the coming months. While no one can predict the weather, we CAN prepare for its effects in other ways.

One common question a lot of people have: “What happens if my neighbor’s tree falls and damages MY house or other property? Who is responsible … the homeowner or the neighbor?”

This scenario occurs frequently in neighborhoods in and around Louisville. Do you know the insurance answer? This quick video gives a detailed explanation of what to expect if this were to happen to you.

Get ready for spring weather and contact Schwartz Insurance Group if you have questions about your insurance coverage.
