What Is Considered An Attractive Nuisance?

Young children do not have the ability to fully recognize the dangers that may be present around a property feature, making it imperative that property owners secure these features to the best of their ability. While most often these dangerous objects are things that children may believe are designed for them, nearly anything can become an attractive nuisance in the right circumstances.

  • Attractive nuisances can come in many different forms, including:
  • Swimming pools
  • Sandboxes
  • Playground equipment
  • Trampolines
  • Tool sheds
  • Abandoned Cars
  • Abandoned refrigerators and appliances
  • Construction Equipment

The responsibility is on property owners to secure things like this with preventative measures such as fences, walls, or protective equipment. Merely placing a sign is not usually considered an adequate preventative measure, as often young children who may trespass either cannot read or comprehend what the sign says. An experienced lawyer will be able to help you analyze the evidence of your case and determine how best to proceed in the pursuit of compensation
