Any property owner can tell you, being a landlord is not an easy business. These people deal with renters. But they also may see issues related damages and potential natural disasters.

Having an insurance policy can help a lot. But average coverage only exists to cover the constants of weather damage, fire, and crime. However, liability insurance covers damages and injuries. So this coverage can be vital.

And this covers the full cost of medical payments for the injured and the legal expenses. So make sure that your insurance carrier cares about you. Many agents just want a quick sale and to collect your premium. Having a policy that covers property value including any assets remains relevant.

This insurance should cover all vehicles used for company work. Examples include a work truck or property manager’s vehicle. This type of policy should also cover tangential issues. These items include eviction issues, libel, slander, and other legal problems.

What About Other Policies of Insurance?

Tenants also can get some protection through Renter’s Insurance. This type of insurance protects renters. Coverage examples include robberies or fires not covered under the primary insurance.

These policies often cover up to $50,000 but have deductibles as low as $250. Also, this allows for a vast range of coverage in case of issues that can arise. These Renter’s Insurance policies can also cover personal fault.

These types of insurance cover several different facets of coverage so that the tenant can feel secure. These policies vary per company and plan. But they inure to the benefit of the person and come with a range of coverage and payments.

Boy’s Death on Waterslide Highlights Theme Park Dangers

The case of Caleb Schwab is one of the most tragic in recent memory. The 10-year-old was decapitated in 2016 riding a waterslide in Kansas. The Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City built the world’s tallest waterslide. They also built an engineering nightmare and ignored critical engineering safeguards. A previously sealed indictment provides the information.

As the SF Gate reported, the case sends shockwaves across Kansas and theme parks in general.

The 170-foot ride, known as the Verruckt caused young Caleb’s death and more than another dozen injuries. The Kansas Attorney General’s office is prosecuting the company and one of its former employees. Tyler Austin Miles, the former Director of Operations for the park is charged with involuntary manslaughter and aggravated battery, interference with law enforcement, and aggravated endangering a child.

Negligence and Worse

Perhaps most damning is the knowledge that the park officials knew the ride was unsafe. This negligence caused some critical failures leading to Caleb’s death. Even after some injuries, the company left the ride open. The AG’s office also alleges the company hid vital information.

Victims of the park are still open to compensation. In fact, the severe errors also highlight common issues at other theme parks. Many other parks have similar histories. Furthermore, some parks do not correctly account for safety procedures and means of shutting down rides. In short, many of these parks put profit over their consumers.
