Premises liability cases are determined by a number of things, including the relationship of the guest to the owner, what kind of risks were present and whether anyone could reasonably be expected to know about them. Cases involving children, however, must take into account an additional factor: Not every child understands which areas are off limits in a public or private space. It is for this reason that the burden of liability shifts more onto the owner when very young people are involved.
Risks of Premises Liability
Premises liability cases involve any number of risks, including unsecured machinery, obstacles and holes, impassable surfaces and dangerous elements such as chemicals, attack dogs or broken stairs. Whatever the case, the injuries that can occur to children are often very serious in nature, including spinal injury, traumatic head injury, amputations and paralysis. No matter if your children was injured in a friend's home, a public space or an abandoned area, it is essential to work with an attorney who can help you understand what rights you have to recover your expenses.
