How Junk Removal Can Save You From a Lawsuit, Mount Vernon, New York

An unkempt yard does more than damage your home’s curb appeal. It can pose a liability issue if your outdoor space is considered an attractive nuisance that entices someone to explore. Avoid significant problems, including lawsuits, by learning more about these laws and scheduling junk removal before matters get out of hand.

What Is an Attractive Nuisance?

An attractive nuisance is an outdoor feature that calls attention to your yard, such as a swimming pool, a swing set, construction debris, or a pile of trash. To be considered a "nuisance," the item must also pose a threat if people were to come too close. Usually, the most curious people are children and teenagers who either can't resist or who don't know that danger awaits them. For example, a child roaming through your yard could trip on a pile of debris and hurt themselves. This is why people with leftover construction materials or other debris must call junk removal professionals.

How Can You Be Held Liable?

junk removalAlthough you don't have to childproof your property, you do have to ensure your outdoor space doesn't pose a safety threat to others. For example, you may be held liable if your debris causes harm and you never took the time to contact a junk removal professional. However, if you can prove that you took significant steps to safeguard your property, you may be found innocent.

How Can You Protect  Yourself?

If you have a pile of trash that you haven't gotten around to removing yet, a qualified junk hauling and trash removal service can make quick work of the mess. This will help restore your outdoor space to its original condition and prevent possible lawsuits due to injury.
