Dangerous property attracts teenagers, leads to tragedy

It is not always easy to keep trespassers off one's property, especially if there is something enticing that draws people in. Swimming pools, for example, are considered "attractive nuisances" because children are likely to approach them without fearing danger. In some cases, property owners in Pennsylvania and other states may leave buildings or other structures abandoned, and teenagers may use these places for private hangouts or daring adventures. However, when abandoned structures become dilapidated, the owner of the dangerous property may be liable for any injuries.

Husband of murder victim sues because of dangerous property

In Pennsylvania or any state, a gated community may be one of the last places a person would expect a gruesome murder to take place.

Nevertheless, a family living in such a neighborhood in another state is suing the property's manager and security detail, claiming the inadequate security actually made their home a dangerous property.

Consumers in Pennsylvania should be aware that the lithium-ion batteries in the phones have been reported to cause explosions and fires.
