The Attractive Nuisance Doctrine

In personal injury law, the Attractive Nuisance Doctrine holds property owners accountable for securing their premises against child trespassers. There are certain attractions that may intrigue children; however, if they try to explore them, they can suffer injuries. In some cases, the property owner may be liable for any injuries incurred on their premises.

If you or someone you love was injured while on another party’s property, you may have grounds for filing a legal claim.

Examples of Attractive Nuisances

An attractive nuisance is anything that may intrigue children and causes them to wander onto another party’s property to play, touch, etc. If the child is then injured as a result, the property owner may be held responsible, because it is their duty to secure their premises from curious children. Common examples of attractive nuisances include:

  • Swimming pools
  • Mounds of dirt, sand, or materials
  • Old farming equipment or vehicles
  • Large ditches or holes

If your child was injured because of a negligent property owner, you may be entitled compensation for your losses, including: medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
