Attractive Nuisance Doctrine in Texas

Skilled Fort Worth Personal Injury Attorneys

Some premises liability claims involve what is known as the attractive nuisance doctrine. These claims often involve young children that were drawn to dangerous, unsecured elements of property and subsequently harmed due to the lack of care from the property owner. When these types of injuries occur, the injured child and their family may be eligible for compensation.

Understanding The Attractive Nuisance Doctrine

An "attractive nuisance" is a property feature that is potentially dangerous but that could still inspire the curiosity of a young child. In these cases, it is assumed that the property owner should have known that property feature could be attractive to children but did not remedy or remove the feature from the premises.

Common examples of attractive nuisance features include:

  • Swimming pools
  • Abandoned cars
  • Abandoned appliances (such as refrigerators)
  • Tool sheds
  • Construction equipment/sites

In these cases, signage is rarely a factor (because small children may not be able to read or comprehend them) and even if the child is considered a trespasser on the property, the property owner could still be considered liable for any injuries. If you believe that your premises liability claim falls under the attractive nuisance doctrine, our firm is ready to hear from you. We have successfully navigated a number of child injury cases and know what it takes to secure results for our client families.
