Pokemon Go can lead to accidents and injuries

Pokemon Go is all the rage these days. While it is wonderful that people are getting out and about and being more active, all of that activity and the need to look at a smartphone for Pokemon means that people are getting hurt. Determining what legal actions you can take if you are injured while playing this game is crucial if you do have an accident.

One thing that it is important to remember is that playing Pokemon Go does not necessarily give you the right to go anywhere the game leads you. It is still necessary to respect legal boundaries. For example, if a Pokestop is on private property, that doesn't mean that you should venture onto that property. In fact, one homeowner is so bothered by the presence of players on his property that he has filed a lawsuit to remedy the issue.

When it comes to premises liability, the status of the visitor comes into question. That means that we have to determine if you were an invitee, a trespasser, a licensee, or a social guest. That classification can have an impact on your claims for compensation, so making the correct determination is vital.

The attorneys at Fay Law Group, PA understand that you just want to catch the Pokemon that you have your eyes on. While you are hunting for it, however, make sure that you are following basic safety precautions. If you are injured in an accident while you are hunting, we can help you to determine how to handle the legal aspects of the case.
