Do you Have a case? Call Today! 415-404-6395

The city of Burlingame has changed over the last decade or so, welcoming in new businesses and residents. What hasn’t changed is the relaxing atmosphere. Burlingame is a calm place to live, with plenty of places to go around town.

When you go out with your family, whether to the store for some grocery shopping or to the theater for some evening fun, you usually don’t think about getting into an accident. If you take your kids to the park or the playground, you expect everything to be maintained and safe.

Unfortunately, sometimes accidents happen when you are on someone else’s property. If they are caused by the property owner’s negligence, you may need a Burlingame premises liability attorney. At Allegiance Law, we are standing by to answer any questions you may have.

Wide Range

Any time you go onto someone else’s property and you have the right and expectation to be there, you also have the right to feel safe and secure. Property owners and managers have a duty to ensure that the well being of their guests is looked after. If they don’t, they could be held liable for injuries or damages that you incur. Premises liability cases cover a wide range of possibilities. Here are a few examples:

  • You park your vehicle in a parking garage, but it is broken into. Your valuables are stolen. The owner or operator of that parking garage could be liable for your losses if they failed to provide adequate security.
  • You sit in a chair at a restaurant but it breaks. Unfortunately, you sustain a head injury that hospitalized you. If the owner of the restaurant failed to maintain their chairs, they could be liable for your injury.
  • If you slip and fall because of a poorly maintained walkway at the local park and break your leg, the property owner may be liable for your injuries.

These are just some examples of possible premises liability cases. Not only may the property owner be liable for damages, but they may have to pay more for your personal losses such as lost income if you have to miss work due to your injuries.

What To Do

If a property owner’s negligence has contributed to damages or injuries you incur, you may need a premises liability attorney in Burlingame. The court will examine a number of things when determining whether or not you will be compensated. This will include whether you had a right to be on the property, whether your actions contributed to the injury, and whether the accident was foreseeable. These cases can get confusing and complicated, as the other party will not likely want to admit fault.

At Allegiance Law, we understand these cases and we will help you get the compensation you deserve. We don’t think it is right that you and your family should be negatively impacted financially because of someone else’s negligence. We will walk you through the entire case and help you gather the evidence and documents you need to proceed. You can contact us by clicking here or calling 415-404-6395.
