Potential Challenges to Proving a Premises Liability Claim Involving Children Trespassers

Even though the law holds owners responsible for children’s injuries on the owner’s property, challenges often arise in these types of cases. The owner may take one of these popular defenses.

  • Could not have reasonably anticipated children trespassers
  • The child was old enough to understand the dangers
  • Unable to take the necessary measures to safeguard the child without taking on a large burden personally and greatly restricting the use of the property

If your child was injured while trespassing on some else’s private property, speak to an attorney to determine what your rights are and to get help proving your case.
