An "Attractive Nuisance" Equals a Hazard for Your Children
Often, parents of children injured in playgrounds are reluctant to pursue a lawsuit because they feel that the incident was "just an accident". Many people, though, are surprised to learn that some injuries to children are, in fact, both preventable and actionable under the "attractive nuisance" laws.
The attractive nuisance doctrine holds that if property owners have reason to expect that children will be on their property, property owners are responsible for keeping them safe from harm. An attractive nuisance can be something that would tempt children to enter someone's property, such as playground equipment.
Do not assume your case is not actionable. Cases can involve anything ranging from falls and crushing to burns from overheated ground mats.
