Defining the duty of care of property owners

Like most in San Jose, you understand that when you own property, you are responsible for whatever happens on it. The issue of liability for any accidents or injuries that occur on your land or in your home, however, can often be very complex. Many have come to us here at Shea & Shea - A Professional Law Corporation asking whether any issues that occur on their properties are automatically their fault, or whether or not personal responsibility on the part of the injured party plays a role. If you have the same question, then it is important that you understand your duty of care as a property owner. 

What is the attractive nuisance doctrine?

You may wish you could follow your kids around whenever they left your home, yet that is simply not possible. There will inevitably be times when they are encountered with scenarios in San Jose where they would benefit from your judgment and supervision, yet you are not there to provide it. Fortunately, the law places the responsibility on others to protect your children from certain dangers that could potentially cause them harm.
