What Does Attractive Nuisance Mean?
Category - Home Ownership Questions - General Home Ownership FAQ's

Attractive nuisance is a doctrine of tort law stating that a person who maintains on his or her property a condition that is both dangerous and conceivably inviting to children owes a duty to exercise reasonable care to protect children from the danger.  Thus, an owner who maintains a swimming pool, or unmarked open pit or discards a refrigerator or freezer may be liable for injuries to trespassing children.  Construction sites should be adequately secured to prevent inquisitive children from being injured.  (The Language or Real Estate, Fifth Edition, John W. Reily.)
