Attractice Nuisance: What it really means

Posted by attorney Christopher Zachar

An “ attractive nuisance" is something on a piece of property that attracts children but, because of their age and inability to understand the danger, also jeopardizes their safety. Normal trespassing liability laws imposing no duty on a landowner may not apply when children are involved in an accident, even if they were trespassing. Particularly in Arizona, construction sites seem to appear on every corner. These areas are like magnets for young children, and provide them a whole new dimension of recreational play. However, construction sites also pose many hidden dangers.

The Phoenix child injury lawyers at Zachar Law Firm represent children and the families of injured children by an attractive nuisance.

We have a genuine care and concern for your child’s future, and we dedicate ourselves to fully understanding the nature of your child’s injuries, the present and future needs of your child, and fighting to obtain the maximum compensation to ensure those needs are met.
