With property comes rights, but also obligations — and few as important as this: The duty to maintain one's land (and any structures on it) responsibly. That means keeping it free of hazardous conditions that can — often seriously — injure others. It is, however, a duty that many property owners fail to fulfill. And people get hurt.

Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo & San Francisco Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents are particularly common. They can happen anywhere and cause great personal harm. Most occur in commercial settings: grocery and drug stores, office buildings, construction sites, gas stations, and malls, among other places. But they also happen on private property.
Unfortunately, when it comes to injuries on another's property, slip-and-fall accidents are just the beginning. Other serious incidents include exposure to toxic materials, animal attacks, swimming pool accidents, balcony accidents and amusement park ride accidents. Indeed, these happen so often that an entire area of law — premises liability — exists to address the harm they cause, and place accountability where it belongs: on the property owners who did not live up to their duty to keep the premises safe.
Injuries at Bars, Nightclubs or Other Public Areas
Property owners have a duty to ensure their patrons are safe from preventable harm. Many injuries are caused by physical assaults, lack of or ineffective security personnel, or insufficient lighting. Our team of attorneys will work hard to prove that the property owner should have known the danger and failed to take appropriate actions to prevent your injuries.
