How to Protect Yourself from Attractive Nuisance Liability

Do you have a backyard that kids love to play in? If so, you may be at risk for attractive nuisance liability. Attractive nuisance is a legal term that refers to something dangerous that is also attractive to children. This could include things like swimming pools, trampolines, and even swing sets.

If a child is injured on your property because of an attractive nuisance, you could be held liable. Even if the child was trespassing, you could still be responsible for their injuries.

There are a few things you can do to protect yourself from attractive nuisance liability:

  • Keep your property fenced in. This will make it more difficult for children to access your property without your permission.
  • Lock gates and doors. If you have any gates or doors that lead to your backyard, make sure they are locked when not in use.
  • Post warning signs. Post warning signs around your property that indicate that there are dangerous objects present.
  • Get liability insurance. Liability insurance can help to protect you financially if a child is injured on your property.

If you have a backyard that is attractive to children, it is important to take steps to protect yourself from attractive nuisance liability. By following these tips, you can help to keep your family and your property safe.
