San Jose Government Property Premises Liability Lawyer

If you suffered an injury on the property of another, whether private or public property, you may be entitled to compensation. If you were hurt by a dangerous condition on government-owned land or in a government-owned building, it is important to work with attorneys who understand how to approach cases involving public property.

At Scher, Bassett & Hames, we represent people throughout the Bay Area who have suffered personal injuries. We work hard to secure full and fair compensation for those injured on public property. We are very familiar with the legal requirements for pursuing a case against the government, and you can be confident that we will do everything we can to get you the compensation you deserve.

San Jose Lawyers Serving the Bay Area Since 1955

Our attorneys represent people injured on municipal, state or federal property, such as:

  • Streets and sidewalks
  • Public schools and universities
  • Government office buildings
  • National parks and state parks
  • Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals and other public health facilities

For slip-and-falls and other injuries on government property, there are special considerations to consider. A lawsuit must be filed within six months from the date of the injury. There may be immunity issues raised by the government, essentially arguing that the government should not have pay for your injuries. When you come to us, you can be confident knowing that we understand what it takes to be successful in cases against governments and we will do everything we can to protect your rights.
