Summer is just around the corner, which means your children will soon be on vacation from school. As your children take to the outdoors to explore and play with their friends, they are exposed to a number of dangers. Children are naturally curious and prone to exploring areas which interest them, despite how dangerous the location may be. Therefore, property owners are legally obligated to take safety measures to ensure any children who enter the property are not in harm’s way. The doctrine of attractive nuisance refers to objects or spaces that appeal and entice children to enter a potentially hazardous property. Because children do not yet have the development skills to comprehend possible risks, property owners must ensure their land is inaccessible.
Common examples of attractive nuisances include, but are not limited to:
- Swimming pools, fountains, & Jacuzzis
- Trampolines & skateboard ramps
- Slides, swings, & playgrounds
- Yardwork tools & lawnmowers
- Sports equipment
- Industrial equipment or machinery
- Abandoned vehicles or sheds
If property owners fail to take appropriate safety measures and your child is harmed as a result, there is no time to waste before you reach out to a legal team that will protect and promote your child’s best interests.
