    Typically, property is not sued directly. One exception to that rule is forfeiture where the government goes after property civilly or criminally if it was used to further some crime. However, if you as a homeowner, were negligent and created an unsafe condition on your property and someone was injured you could be civilly liable. This means the injured party could sue you personally in court and if they received a judgment they would collect that from you. I would have to know more details about your case to evaluate whether you could be liable for the injuries that occurred. If the injured party files a lawsuit and you are served with a notice, I recommend you consult an attorney that has experience with tort law.
