Injuries on Someone Else’s Property

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Child Injury Law Firm
for Injuries on Someone Else's Property

When a child gets injured on someone else’s property, many people assume that it is the fault of the child’s parents, but that is not always the case. 

A property owner may be legally responsible for the child’s injuries. If your child has been injured on someone else’s property, we recommend that you speak with an attorney at an Atlanta child injury law firm as soon as possible. Whether your child was a guest or a trespasser when their accident occured, your claim will fall under the context of premises liability. The crux of most premises liability cases proving that the property owner was negligent in some way. 

Whether or not you can prove that the property owner breached their duty to make the property safe will depend on the facts in your case. That said, cases involving children carry additional difficulties – they often cannot read signs, they are naturally curious, and they do not appreciate potentially dangerous situations. If your child has been injured on someone else’s property, we recommend that you contact an Atlanta child injury law firm before the property owner blames you or your child for the accident. 

Atlanta Child Injury Law Firm for Trespass and Attractive Nuisances Accidents

Generally speaking, property owners owe no legal duty to people trespassing on their property. In other words, if you trespass on someone else’s property and are injured, you cannot sue the property owner for failing to fix the dangerous condition that caused your injury. 

Fortunately, there is an exception to the trespassing rule when applied to children if the property contains a hazardous feature that would be attractive to children. The following property features are likely to be considered an attractive nuisance: 

  • Unattended ponds or swimming pools
  • Deep pits
  • Ladders or something that can be easily climbed
  • Tall structures or raised structures
  • Old machinery

You may be thinking that almost anything could be considered as potentially attractive to children. While this is true, our Atlanta child injury law firm can hold property owners liable for injuries when the following conditions are met: 

  • The owner knew or had reason to know that children were likely to trespass on their property;
  • The owner knew or had reason to know that the condition on the property presented an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death to children;
  • Children would not know about or appreciate the risk present on the property;
  • The burden of removing the danger was slight compared to the risk presented to children; and
  • The owner failed to exercise reasonable care to address the danger or otherwise protect potential child trespassers.

Determining whether the property owner may be held liable is fairly difficult and will depend largely on the specific facts and circumstances surrounding your case. 

What Kind of Claim Do I Have If My Child Was Injured Outside of Our Home?

Whether your child was a guest or a trespasser when their accident occured, your claim will fall under the context of premises liability. The crux of most premises liability cases proving that the property owner was negligent in some way.

Whether or not you can prove that the property owner breached their duty to make the property safe will depend on the facts in your case. That said, cases involving children carry additional difficulties – they often cannot read signs, they are naturally curious, and they do not appreciate potentially dangerous situations. If your child has been injured on someone else’s property, we recommend that you contact an Atlanta child injury law firm before the property owner blames you or your child for the accident.
