January 30th, 2017| As you can probably tell by the product liability cases we’ve won in the past, we take consumer’s rights very seriously at Berg Injury Lawyers. We believe if you spend your hard-earned money on a product, you shouldn’t have to fear that your life is in danger when using it. But your rights as a consumer go far beyond the products you buy. Every business you visit in the Bay Area has a responsibility to your safety. When that responsibility isn’t upheld, the result can be tragic. Premises liability cases, or slip and fall cases, involve injuries sustained on someone else’s property due to hazardous conditions or a negligent act. For example, if you are in a business in San Francisco and a poorly constructed structure collapses, causing you physical harm, you may have a premises liability claim against the business. However, proving such a claim can be difficult. As your San Francisco premises liability attorneys, we must prove:
- The condition of the property was dangerous.
- The owner knew, or should have known, about the property’s condition.
- The owner had a reasonable amount of time to fix the condition of the property.
