Connecticut Child Injury While Trespassing on Anothers Property; Can We Still Collect Money Damages?

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Apr 01, 2013 | 0 Comments

Your child is seriously injured in Connecticut while on the land of another person. Your child did not have permission to be on this person's property and you are concerned about the fact that you might not be able to collect money damages for the injury sustained by your child because of that fact. You are terrified about your child's medical condition and you are experiencing a great deal of uncertainty about whether or not your child will make a full recovery. The last thing you need to worry about is a legal issue involving your child's accident. You need to concentrate on making sure your child gets the best medical care possible.

Our Connecticut child accident and injury lawyers have been representing children and their families for decades. We have the knowledge, training, and experience needed to properly develop your child's injury case. As a result of our experience we have written the book “The Crash Course on Child Injury Claims.” This comprehensive book is almost 200 pages long and contains very valuable information regarding the specialized area of practice which involves child injury cases.

Connecticut Jury Instruction 3.9 - 5 Status of Parties - Children states as follows: if certain conditions are present, the law imposes upon the possessor of land the duty to take reasonable care to safeguard children from danger even if they are trespassers on the property. The conditions which must all be present to give rise to this duty are these: the injury suffered by the child must be due to some structure, thing or other artificial condition on the premises; the place where the condition exists is one upon which the possessor knows or has reason to know that children are likely to trespass; the condition is one that the possessor knows of or all of which the possessor has reason to know; the condition is one that the possessor realizes or should realize involved in unreasonable risk of death or serious bodily harm to such children; children coming on the premises, because of their youth, would not discover the thing or condition, or realize the risk of meddling with it or coming within the area made dangerous by it; the utility of maintaining the condition as it is and the burden of eliminating the danger by changing it or safeguarding it, are slight as compared with the risk to the children; in the possessor fails to exercise reasonable care to eliminate the danger or otherwise protect the children.

It is highly important that you contact an experienced Connecticut child injury lawyer at the earliest possible moment.

There is no financial risk on you. The only thing you need to do is concentrate on making sure your child gets better.
