When Tempting Play Opportunities Lead a to a Child’s Injury, Know Your Rights

Owners of private buildings and property have an obligation to block access to areas they know or should know a child would find interesting to explore or play in or around. Under the attractive nuisance doctrine, property owners who do not take appropriate precautions may be held liable when children are hurt or even killed due to dangers on their property. This law applies to commercial and individual property owners alike.

Common attractive nuisance areas include:

  • Swimming pools, saunas, and jacuzzies
  • Industrial and farm equipment storage sites
  • Roofs of public buildings
  • Stairwells and fire escapes
  • Construction and digging sites
  • Storage sites with old equipment, campers, or automobiles on which children may like to climb
  • Wells, tunnels, and parking garages
  • Railroads, railyards, and train stations

The law recognizes children may not operate with the same understanding of hazards as adults—and that they may slip away from parents, entering property they are not supposed to. Therefore, it is our duty as a society to reduce dangers to children. When property owners fail to secure attractive nuisance areas, they should be held accountable for any accidents and injuries that result.

Railroads Are an Attractive Nuisance

Railroads invite childhood imagination but come with many hazards kids simply won’t know to watch out for. Therefore, the owners and operators of these sites must make sure they are well-fenced and gated so children cannot slip in to play. Sadly, railroad accidents—involving high speeds and large vehicles—tend to be fatal for children. The loss of a child is heartbreaking, and if a railroad owner’s negligence contributed to it, we want to help you find justice.
