Hospitality claims involving children differ from adult claims because generally the law does not expect children to comprehend the dangers they might face. As a result, the common law has recognized the doctrine of attractive nuisance. This doctrine confers a duty upon landowners who have reason to believe that children may come onto their property. In such case, the landowner has a duty to prevent the harm. If such duty is breached, the landowner may be found liable.
