Falling Concrete: A hillside on the insured’s property was covered with concrete to prevent erosion. The concrete had been installed before the insured purchased the property.

Paintball Misfortune: The insured permitted several of her children and their friends to play paintball in her large back yard. The children were experienced and advised of all the safety rules including the use of headgear at all times.
