Program Description:  Every year, many people are hurt while in someone else’s home or place of business. People may be injured on a flight of stairs, on a patch of ice or snow, by a building defect, or by the intentional, criminal act of a third party.  
Both residential and commercial property owners have a duty to maintain their property to ensure the safety of anyone who enters.
