Dangerous Conditions That Cause Harm

Premises liability laws can hold property owners financially responsible when dangerous conditions on their property cause injury. In California, these cases can encompass a broad spectrum of issues, from uniform building code violations to improper maintenance or management. They can also involve defective design or construction that leads to injury or death on public or private property.

If you are considering a lawyer for your negligent maintenance or negligent construction case, here are a few things to consider when selecting a lawyer.

At Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, our trial lawyers have the experience and the resources to effectively litigate against government entities, owners of large properties such as shopping malls and apartment complexes, landlords, property management companies and insurers. We know how to identify negligent conduct and fight for fair compensation.

Experienced Help After An Accident On Public Or Private Property

Our premises liability practice includes representation for accidents related to improper maintenance, poor construction, inadequate warnings, insufficient lighting, inadequate handrails or stairs and other premises defects. Our attorneys handle cases that involve:

  • Falling objects or debris
  • Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls in stairwells with nonuniform step heights or broken railings
  • Deck and stairway collapses due to negligent construction
  • Playground equipment failure
  • Defective elevators or escalators (shoes, clothing or feet becoming entrapped because of brush guard problems)
  • Hazardous doors or windows that may allow falls when screens or required tempered glass is missing

Airbnb and VRBO (vacation rentals by owner) arrange for people to rent accommodations all over the world. Their lengthy self-serving agreements contain general liability releases. But this does not mean you cannot bring a premises liability claim under certain circumstances that we can explain after reviewing your circumstances.

In addition, we handle cases involving assaults or break-ins that occur due to negligent security measures such as insufficient window and door locks, fencing and guarding equipment, and security systems.

Making Use Of Technological Advances

Our advanced use of courtroom technology and electronic case presentation allows us to get the results our clients need. With technology, we can clarify complex architectural and engineering issues, highlight inconsistencies in testimony, and present medical information in a way that will help the jury understand the consequences of a traumatic brain injury.

If you were injured on an unsafe San Francisco Bay Area property, you may be able to bring an injury claim against the property owner or landlord, the property manager or management company, a private security company, a maintenance company, or even a builder. Depending upon the circumstances of the accident, more than one party could be liable.
