Georgia’s “Attractive Nuisance” Doctrine
In addition, the law in Georgia imposes a duty on property owners to keep their premises free from any hazards that might attract and injure children.
Under this doctrine, property owners can be held liable for injuries that occur to trespassing children who are hurt by unsafe property conditions, such as inadequately secured pools and trampolines, as well as abandoned appliances and equipment.
If your child has been hurt because of an unsafe condition on a neighbor’s property, our slip and fall attorneys may be able to help you secure compensation for the damages you have incurred.
