Greenville Attractive Nuisance Attorney

Let Us Help You Seek Compensation

An attractive nuisance is a term used in law to describe property containing items or features that could attract children and potentially threaten them with harm. Children are both playful and curious, so if there is anything in a yard indicating they might benefit from learning and exploring it, the owner of the yard can be held liable if any children are injured.

If your kid was harmed by an attractive nuisance on someone else’s property, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our Greenville premises liability lawyers are dedicated to helping the victims of personal injury seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

What Makes an Attractive Nuisance?

An attractive nuisance must be something so incredibly exciting it would entice a child into entering someone else’s property. This might sound unusually broad, but most courts limit this definition. For example, many courts require the object be man-made and may require that you maintain the nuisance to be held liable. Some examples of attractive nuisances include the following:

  • Swimming pools
  • Fountains
  • Machinery
  • Wells
  • Tunnels
  • Dangerous animals
  • Paths and stairs

Natural conditions, such as lakes or steep banks, are not considered attractive nuisances.

Someone’s ability to recover compensation for an injury on another’s property depends on the category in which a court places an injured person. If the court considers the injured party a trespasser, the law usually protects a property owner from liability in all cases except where the owner acts “wantonly or willfully.” However, very young children are the exception to this rule. For example, some state courts have found the danger of drowning or injuring oneself in a pool an open and obvious risk landowners should be aware of.
