Attractive Nuisance Claims
Representation from a Lynchburg Personal Injury Lawyer
When a property feature presents an injury risk to children who may not
be able to recognize the dangers it presents, this feature is called an
“attractive nuisance.” These can be a serious problem for
property owners, who can be held liable for any accidents they may cause.
However, they can be an equally serious problem for parents and families
looking for answers after their child has sustained an injury..

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
- Playground equipment
- 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
