California Laws Dealing with Injuries to Children on Private Property
If your children are more active in the community during the summertime, it is important to teach them about the dangers of wandering onto someone else’s property without permission. The best way to deal with injuries is to avoid them in the first place. However, if your child has been injured on another person’s property, here are a few things you need to know.
Laws Dealing with Negligence that Apply to Children
Some California laws have changed regarding liability when it comes to trespassers. In the past, California laws about trespassers who suffer injuries didn’t apply to children, especially if the court deemed that the situation that the child was drawn toward as something particularly attractive to children (a friendly looking pet, a pool with no fence, etc.).
Those laws were done away with many years ago. However, landowners are still expected to foresee potential dangers, even one’s that may affect a person with no business being on their property. The courts apply this even more so when a child is involved. As a result, injuries on private property are handled on a case by case basis.
