Premises Liability - Municipal Liability

Although this case was not handled by the Karns Law Group, we found it interesting and wanted to share it with our readers here on the blog.

A city can be sued by a boy who was injured when he tried to detonate unused fireworks weeks after retrieving them from a display at a public park, the New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled.

The ten-year-old plaintiff found fireworks in a municipal park after a city fireworks display. One month later, he suffered severe damage to his left hand after he ignited them in a nearby wooded area.

The court indicated the abandoned fireworks created a "dangerous condition" and the boy could recover.

In Rhode Island it would be the same if the abandoned fireworks would be considered "egregious misconduct" and which a "dangerous condition" would be considered.
