There's a huge difference between a website run by a business with 
deeper pockets than an individual.  When someone gets hurt and gets 
treated in the emergency room these days, the first thing the health 
insurance company does (before they pay the claim, even) is send a 
letter asking (in effect) who might be available to help defray the 
cost.  It's not all that complex.. just asks some innocently worded 
questions with big implications:
Where did the accident occur?
was it on private property?
Is the property owned or leased by a business?
Was anyone else involved in the accident?
