A single flaw in a large building could cause a life-changing injury for someone who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. From our office in San Jose, the Law Offices of Richard J. Staskus takes these cases on behalf of injured victims and secures the payment they deserve. We’ve built a strong track record over more than 40 years and aggressively seek ways to win cases when other firms are ready to compromise.

Bay Area litigator battles to maximize payment in a trial or settlement
Whether you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident, by falling debris or due to some other instance of negligence, our personal injury firm offers a free initial consultation and aggressive advocacy. We handle a full range of building accident claims, such as those involving:
- Faulty construction or repairs — To save time and money, corners are often cut during building repairs. If you’ve been hurt due to substandard construction, we’ll hold the negligent parties to account.
- Falls from roofs or high floors — The absence of appropriate safety railings and other precautionary measures puts people at risk. When someone has fallen from a roof or a high floor, our firm conducts a thorough review to find out if the injury could have been prevented with reasonable care.
- Poor maintenance — Owning or maintaining a property carries a significant, ongoing legal responsibility. An untended spill or debris that is allowed to remain on the floor might trigger an accident that leads to broken bones, a concussion or other extensive harm.
- Poor signage and unseen hazards — If a hazard is not easily visible, clear indications must exist to warn invitees who are using the premises. California’s comparative negligence law allows plaintiffs to recover damages even when they are partly at fault for their injury.
For cases arising from falls at places of business and other building accidents, we won’t just accept any offer from defendants, but will fight to maximize your financial recovery.
