As NBC-2 explains, attractive nuisances is a legal term that refers to potential hazards to children on your property. These hazards include swimming pools, trampolines, swing sets, ladders, old cars, dogs, construction waste, old appliances, etc.
In Florida, property owners are required to take reasonable steps to keep these hazardous conditions from children. Otherwise, should a child be injured on the property, the property owner could be held liable for any injuries sustained on the property under the attractive nuisance doctrine.
