Bee stings: Property owners may be liable

One kind of personal injury that doesn't often come up is a bee sting. When you get a single sting, it usually isn't a big deal unless you are allergic. However, there are times when people are attacked by swarms of bees as a result of the negligence of a property owner. It is in these cases that individuals may have a right to file a claim for compensation.

Here's an example. If you are mowing your lawn and notice that your neighbor's house has a bee's nest, you might let them know. If, after asking them to remove it, the bees still remain, you may have no option but to continue mowing near the hive.

The problem is that some bees can become slightly territorial and may attack if they have been bothered. If you brought your concerns to your neighbor and your neighbor failed to remove the danger within a reasonable amount of time, then you may have a case against them.

Here's another example. If you go to a friend's home and are attacked by a swarm of bees that were in a tree house or under a deck but that they did know about, you could allege that they were negligent by not removing the danger. It would fall to you to prove that they allowed the hazard to remain on the property knowing it was a risk.

In cases involving bee stings, the most important thing is that you get medical care right away. While you may not be allergic, suffering multiple stings can be painful and it may cause unexpected allergies even in people who normally don't have a problem.
