The law against trespass protects the interest in the exclusive possession of land. This is different from the law against “nuisance” which protects one’s interest in the free and unhindered use and enjoyment of land.
A person is subject to liability for trespass, irrespective of whether he causes harm, if he intentionally:
Enters the land or causes another to do so
Remains on the land when asked to leave
Fails to remove from the land a thing he is under a duty to remove
Often times insurance companies hire stalkers aka private detectives who trespass to spy on injured people. These peeping toms and the insurance companies that hired them can be required to pay money for damages if they trespass on your property.
