Experienced Bay Area Personal Injury Lawyers
Walkup Melodia’s premises liability practice includes representing injured clients against private landowners, government building owners, corporate building owners and others who own and manage real property. We have successfully brought claims on behalf of injured clients for property-related cases involving:
- Rotted steps, stairways, and exterior decks
- Trip-and-fall hazards
- Inadequate security
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Falling objects
- Dog bites
- Unsafe stairwells
- Poor lighting
Securing financial compensation in premises liability cases can be difficult because of the legal requirements for holding owners, builders, and occupiers responsible. Those issues include clarifying factual issues of ownership, responsibility and medical causation.
Through the years, we have recovered more than $100 million on behalf of clients injured as a result of property owner or property manager negligence and fault. Our legal team is highly experienced in helping injured Californians navigate the complicated array of legal and evidentiary issues that a premises liability case can pose.
San Francisco Inadequate Security Lawsuit Attorneys
In addition to representing individuals injured by improperly maintained homes, unsafe workplaces, malfunctioning elevators and escalators, trip-and-fall hazards and dog bites, our attorneys handle cases involving inadequate commercial security measures.
You have a right to be safe when you are in a hotel, motel, apartment complex or other public or commercial place. Crime prevention and security, or lack thereof, play an important role in cases where someone is the victim of a crime in a public or commercial place.
Inadequate security claims can arise out of injuries on most any type of property, including:
- Apartment buildings
- Parking lots and ramps
- Amusement parks
- Shopping malls
- Hotels and motels
- Bars and restaurants
All of these places invite the public to be present, and often to spend money, and you have a right to be safe from injury while on the property.
Our legal team handles premises liability cases throughout San Francisco, including South of Market, Mission Bay, Chinatown, and the Tenderloin district. If you would like a free consultation to discuss your case, call us at (415) 889-2919 or contact us online.
