Unsafe Premises and Attractive Nuisance Injury Lawyer

Children are innately curious and lack the reasoning capabilities to recognize dangers. It is the responsibility of adults to ensure that children are not accidently injured by removing obvious dangers. This is not just the responsibility of parents but of any property owners. When a child is injured due to unsafe hazards, the owner of the property may be liable for their injuries under premises liability and attractive nuisance laws.

Premises liability laws make a property owner responsible for maintaining a safe property. If someone allowed on their property is injured, including a child, the property owner may be financially liable if there are unsafe conditions. This can be a residential or commercial property. A child who falls in a trench or hole in a yard or burns themselves at a restaurant buffet, may have their injuries covered by premises liability laws.

What Is an Attractive Nuisance?

Unlike general premises liability laws, attractive nuisance clauses for property liability apply specifically to children. An attractive nuisance is an unsafe item that is attractive to children, posing a risk to their well-being.

For example, children are intrigued by swimming pools or swing sets that may be in a neighbor’s yard, yet these items could be unsafe. If there is no fence or deterrent to stop a child from going into the pool or playing on an unsafe swing set, and an injury occurs, the property owner may be responsible for the injury. Even though the child was trespassing and not invited on the property, under the attractive nuisance exception, the property owner may be considered liable for not actively preventing an injury to a child.

If you have a child that was injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law. In many cases, the property owner may be liable for the injuries. You may be able to make a premises liability claim against them or their insurance company.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
