San Francisco Dangerous Premises Injury Lawyers

Pedestrians Are at Risk for Many Potential Hazards

Pedestrians and bicyclists do not have the same protections as motorists - such as a metal roof, air bag, or seat belt - so pedestrians can be at risk for many potential hazards. Pedestrians can be harmed by negligent drivers and other issues as well. Dangerous external factors that wouldn't necessarily cause drivers significant damages can cause significant harm to pedestrians.

Property owners must maintain property conditions that are reasonably safe for the public. This means that any owner of property, including an individual, a business, or a municipal entity, must uphold its duty to the public. If the property owner is negligent in maintaining the property and that negligence results in an injury or accident, an injured victim can seek compensation for the damages that they have suffered. If you were injured because of negligent property maintenance, our San Francisco pedestrian and bicycle accident lawyers can represent you through your pursuit for financial compensation.

Accidents Caused by Property Defects

The city of San Francisco is known for its beautiful architecture and historical buildings. To ensure the safety of the public, the city imposes specific building codes with which property owners must comply. When a negligent property owner fails to comply with the safety regulations, hazards can pose serious risks for unsuspecting passersby and pedestrians.

Examples of dangerous premises include the following:

  • Dangerous roadways
  • Unsafe intersections
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Construction sites
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Negligent security
  • Holes in pavement
  • Exposed nails or other sharp objects
  • Cracked walkways or unmaintained lanes designated for pedestrians and cyclists
