Protecting The Rights Of Injured Children

Young children are often curious about their surroundings. At the same time, their lack of awareness sometimes places them in risky situations that can lead to serious injuries. Because of this, it is often up to adults who are responsible for the well-being of children to maintain safe and low-risk environments.

Some people who are responsible for overseeing the well-being of children include parents, teachers and day care providers. However, they can also include owners of certain properties like playgrounds and toy manufacturers, who should design products suitable for young ages.

With a lack of supervision, children have a higher chance of getting into accidents. If your child has been hurt in North Carolina due to the negligence of someone else, our team of experienced personal injury lawyers will help you seek compensation for your losses.

What Is An Attractive Nuisance?

The term "attractive nuisance" refers to places or items that tend to attract children more than others creating a higher likelihood of injuries to children. Examples of attractive nuisances include:

  • Unfenced swimming pools or ponds
  • Abandoned buildings
  • Defective toys
  • Poorly maintained playgrounds, including inflatable houses

Property owners or manufacturers of these attractions are obligated to keep children away from these dangers. This may include fencing off a pool area, boarding up an abandoned house or removing toys that are broken or not age-appropriate at a day care.

While we cannot turn back time, we will help you obtain the financial resources your child needs for the future. We are dedicated to securing justice for your child according to your unique circumstances. We will fight for your right to compensation so that you can approach the outcome of your child's playground accident, day care accident or another type of incident from a place of financial security.
