Young children see the world as a place to play, but their parents always have their eyes open for danger. A child sees a fun park to play in, while a parent worries about fire ants lurking in ant hills and broken bones that could be suffered if the kids climb the trees. A kid sees a mini golf course full of interesting contraptions around which to hit the ball, while a parent fears kids whacking each other with golf clubs if the adults avert their eyes for as much as a second. A kid sees a pit full of plastic balls at an indoor playground, and a parent sees a pit full of germs.
From the perspective of a personal injury attorney, property owners should adopt the same mindset as helicopter parents in that they have a duty to take reasonable measures to ensure that their property is not the site of an accident waiting to happen. If a visitor suffers a serious injury on someone else’s property, whether a residence or a place of business, and the injury was the result of the property owner allowing preventable dangerous conditions to persist on the property, the injured party could have a case for a premises liability lawsuit.
