Who Pays When A Tree Falls In A Storm?
During the often intense storm season we get in South-East Queensland it is quite common for trees to come down. While the immediate concern is the safety of everyone around the tree, when it comes time to deal with the fallout the situation can become even more stressful. Eventually the tree needs to be removed and the damage it caused paid for but who actually pays for this?
The most common questions that pop up during this time is whether your insurance covers the damage caused by the tree and its subsequent removal and what happens when your tree falls into the neighbour’s yard. The answer to both of these questions will depend on your insurance policy. Depending on what your coverage provides there may be stipulations as to what can be claimed and what can’t.
