According to Paul Quinn, head of claims customer experience with Farmers Insurance, weather perils are not the only thing consumers have to watch out for.

"Everyone can appreciate having fun and hosting a party for friends and family to visit," said Quinn. "But nothing can ruin a party faster than a fire or some type of injury. It's important to ensure that everyone is staying safe."

Summer typically means that more and more homeowners will be outside enjoying their backyards with friends and family. Barbecues, pool parties and playdates for the kids are supposed to be fun, however, Farmers® advises consumers to review the tips provided in the Seasonal Smarts Digest to protect from serious injury and potentially costly claims surrounding pools, barbecues, trampolines and fire pits.
