San Francisco Personal Injury
As a tenant, you are somewhat dependent on your landlord for safety and security. In fact, landlords and apartment building managers may be legally responsible if you are injured through their negligent actions or dereliction of duty.
The law firm of Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., practices in both personal injury premises liability and landlord-tenant law. We advocate exclusively for tenants, representing renters who have suffered serious injuries in claims and lawsuits against the property owners.
With offices in San Francisco, we handle cases throughout the Bay Area and surrounding counties of Northern California. Call us to learn how we can be of service.
The common areas of apartment complexes — stairs, parking garages, swimming pools, exercise rooms or laundry facilities — can fall into disrepair from excessive use or neglected maintenance. Landlords and property owners have a responsibility to maintain the safety of these areas and identify and address conditions that need to be fixed. The owners or managers of apartment buildings may also be legally responsible for injuries within apartment units, if the injury traces to code violations or maintenance obligations.
Our experienced attorneys have obtained notable recoveries in apartment complex litigation, including settlements of more than $1 million for catastrophic harm. We handle any scenario of tenant accidents and injuries:
We will pursue compensation for medical bills and lost wages, as well as damages for future medical care, lasting disability, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering. You may also have a claim for personal property lost or damaged in a fire, robbery or slip-and-fall.
The management of an apartment complex, under California Civil Code § 1941, has an obligation to tenants and visitors. This includes a duty to keep stairways and common areas in a safe and sanitary condition, to maintain furnaces and water heaters in good working order, and to ensure that doors, gates and windows are secure against unlawful access. In many cases, our investigation reveals that owners failed to take extra security measures after crimes were committed by third parties or failed to act after others filed complaints or suffered injury.
The housing codes and premises liability laws do not apply only to the fanciest apartment buildings. All tenants have the same rights to live in a safe and secure facility.
