San Francisco Premises Liability Lawyer

Injured on Someone Else’s Property in San Francisco?

When a property owner or manager fails to maintain safe conditions on his or her property, accidents are much more likely to happen. Laws regarding property ownership are designed to create standards of safety that guests, tenants, and patrons alike can come to expect when visiting a property. The last thing people expect is to suffer serious damages or injuries just by making a simple trip to the grocery store or mall.

If you or a loved one was hurt in an accident on someone else's property because of hazardous conditions, you should speak with a San Francisco premises liability attorney to learn about the legal options available to you. Not everyone will have a case, but our firm is particularly adept at determining which course of action can be taken to hold negligent parties accountable and pursue compensation that may be rightfully yours.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. When a property manager fails to mop, sweep, or clean slippery substances off the floor, an unsuspecting patron or employee can slip or trip and fall. These accidents can result in minor to catastrophic injuries, including bumps and scratches or brain and spinal cord injuries.

Animal Attacks or Dog Bites

Pet owners in California are required to keep their pets restrained by using a leash. If an animal is unrestricted and attacks someone, the resulting damages can include scratches, infections, scarring, and/or emotional damage. If you, your child, or a loved one has been attacked, the owner may be held responsible.

Negligent Security

Property owners can take precautions to ensure a safe and secure environment. From adequate lighting to hiring security personnel, these measures can ensure the safety of visitors. Unfortunately, dim lighting, negligent security staff, or inadequate locks can result in criminal activity or other potential hazards.

Accidents Caused by Property Defects

San Francisco is known for its beautiful architecture and historical buildings. To ensure the safety of the public, the city imposes specific building codes with which property owners must comply. When a negligent property owner fails to comply with regulations, hazards can pose serious risks for unsuspecting pedestrians.

Examples of dangerous premises include:

  • Dangerous roadways
  • Unsafe intersections
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Dangerous construction sites
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Holes in the pavement
  • Exposed nails or sharp objects
  • Unsafe walkways

Property conditions must be reasonably safe for the public. This means that any owner of property, including an individual, a business, or a municipal entity, must uphold its duty to the public. If negligent maintenance results in an accident or injury, victims can seek compensation for the damages they have suffered.

At The Matiasic Firm, we can help you hold property owners, municipalities, or other parties responsible. We are skilled at determining who has the primary responsibility for addressing defective property conditions. In some cases, we are able to establish that multiple parties can be held liable for your injuries.
