Due to their smaller size and inability to assess risks as readily as adults children are particularly vulnerable and susceptible to serious personal injuries caused by the careless or reckless acts of others. For example, even in situations where children are trespassers on construction sites and property containing swimming pools or lakes, landowners in Florida may be liable for improperly maintaining, securing, or otherwise taking reasonable steps to prevent children from entering the property and becoming injured.
Additionally, the pain, suffering, and mental anguish experienced by the entire family are particularly strong when a child is traumatically and needlessly injured. While accidents may happen, adults, landowners, businesses, and product manufacturers/distributors are in a better position to foresee the consequences of their actions, or inaction, to prevent harmful injuries to children.
While accidents may happen, adults are in a better position to foresee the consequences of their actions to help prevent injuries to children.
