Trespassing Attorney

A trespass occurs when a defendant intentionally enters into the land of the plaintiff. The tort of trespass protects one's interest in the exclusive possession of his/her land. This is to be distinguished from the tort of "nuisance" which protects one's interest in the free and unhindered use and enjoyment of that land.No trespassing sign

A person is subject to liability for trespass, if he/she intentionally does any of the following:

  1. Enters the land or causes another to do so;
  2. Remains on the land when asked to leave; or
  3. Fails to remove from the land a thing he/she is under a duty to remove.

Although intent to enter the land is a required element of trespass, a defendant who does not know the land belongs to another can still commit trespass. The following examples, therefore, would not be defenses to trespass:

a)      Incorrectly believing the land to be his/hers

b)      Incorrectly believing the land belongs to someone other than plaintiff

c)      Incorrectly believing that he/she is permitted to be on plaintiff’s land

d)      Incorrectly believing to have plaintiff’s consent to be on plaintiff’s land

e)      Not knowing he/she is on another’s land

    What Our Clients Say

    "Working with The Rothenberg Law Firm was a very easy and straightforward process. They actually surprised me with the extra time and additional attention to my case. I'd recommend them to anyone."

    Victoria H.
    New York

    “During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined.”
