Premises Liability

San Jose Premises Liability Attorneys

Personalized Attention from Experienced Bay Area Attorneys

“Premises liability” means who is responsible for injuries caused by a dangerous condition on somebody’s property. At Needham Kepner & Fish LLP, our San Jose premises liability attorneys help people 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, nursing home, office, home, or other property.

If Someone Is Injured on Your Property, Are You Liable?

Property owners have a legal duty to keep their property reasonably safe. This includes inspecting the property for potential hazards, performing regular maintenance and posting warnings about any hazards that can’t be fixed.

You may 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.

If you were injured due to the negligence of a property owner, contact our San Jose premises liability attorneys by calling (408) 716-1668 today!

Causes of Dangerous Property

Hazards that can give rise to a premises liability lawsuit include:

  • Spills
  • Obstructions on stairs
  • Poorly maintained sidewalks or walkways
  • Malfunctioning elevators or escalators
  • Collapsing decks
  • Exposed wiring
  • Failure to maintain common areas in mobile home developments

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

After you suffer a slip and fall injury, gathering evidence quickly 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, like 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.
