If someone gets hurt trespassing on my lake, am I liable?
Question Details: We purchased a 5 acre retention lake in our neighborhood from a tax sale and have posted no trespassing signs around it but neighbors still fish and put their kayaks in. If someone was to get hurt or drown, am I liable even with the no trespassing signs and them trespassing on private property?
