FAQ: Are you liable if a child gets hurt on your property?

Like all personal injury cases, it depends on the facts and circumstances surrounding the injury. Anytime your child or someone else’s child is hurt, the child’s parents should contact a personal injury lawyer to investigate the facts and determine what claims and what damages can be sought. If a child is hurt on someone’s property, they are afforded more leniency in some situations, because of their tender age, and may be able to recover even though they trespassed on the land or had no invitation or right to be there. This is why it is vital to consult with a personal injury lawyer if your child is injured.
