San Jose Premises Liability Lawyers Help Slip and Fall Victims
Personalized attention from experienced Bay Area attorneys
“Premises liability” is just a highfalutin way of talking about who’s responsible for injuries caused by a dangerous condition on somebody’s property. At Needham Kepner & Fish LLP, we help people in San Jose and throughout the Bay Area who have suffered broken bones, hip replacements, spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries after slipping and falling because of an unsafe condition in a store, office, home or other property.
Property owners have a legal duty to keep their property reasonably safe. This includes inspecting the property from time to time, performing regular maintenance, repairing hazards, and posting warnings about any hazards that can’t be fixed. You have a valid premises liability claim if you were injured because of a dangerous condition on someone’s property, so long as the property owner knew or should have known of the condition and failed to fix it or provide an adequate warning.
Hazards that can give rise to a premises liability lawsuit include:
Time is of the essence if you fall on someone else’s property
After you suffer a slip and fall injury, gathering evidence as quickly as possible can be critical to the success of a premises liability case. Unless you move swiftly, it can be difficult to establish how long some hazards, such as spills, were present. After an accident, property owners also have been known to quickly repair or dispose of the hazard in an effort to scuttle your case. At Needham Kepner & Fish LLP, our personal injury attorneys are committed to moving fast to investigate your claim. We interview witnesses, gather evidence, consult with experts and examine the accident site, whether it’s in San Jose, Sacramento or San Francisco.
