Criminal Trespassing During Halloween
This Halloween season, be mindful that fun trick-or-treating adventures may have consequences, especially when trespassing on someone else's property is involved. Trespassing often sounds like a harmless crime, but it can lead to serious charges. If you are on someone's property illegally, you can be in danger of getting charged with a crime and run the risk of injury or damage.
Criminal trespassing is also known as negligent trespassing or "breaking and entering" occurs when you enter someone else's property without their knowledge. Criminal trespassing can take the form of simply walking into a house without notifying the owners, walking behind a building, robbery or vandalism.
October is a great month to visit the homes of family and friends. However, what would you do if the unthinkable occurs and you get injured on someone else's property? Well, it's nice to be assured that almost every home has homeowners insurance for such occurrences, designed to protect the homeowner. It's unfortunate for you, however, that you will have to deal with an insurance company.
While it is the homeowners insurance company's responsibility to cover personal liability in case you get injured on someone else's property, it is important to remember that these companies have a profit motive to pay you as little as possible.
A common question we get at Attorney Search Network is, "how do I set up a will or trust that distributes assets or funds only when certain things happen?" The answer is: a special needs trust. A special needs trust is a trust that includes criteria on how and when funds and assets can be distributed.
A special needs trust is a trust that can hold cash, personal property, or real property for beneficiaries. Often times a special needs trust is used for beneficiaries who are minor children, who have illness or limiting injuries. A special needs trust can also hold proceeds from a life insurance policy, a will, or a civil litigation suit. Other common uses for special needs trusts are trusts established for charitable interests and educational trust funds.
