If you have been injured as a student, faculty member or visitor to a school or university, you want an experienced personal injury attorney to help you get full and fair compensation for your losses. A school has the same duty as any other commercial enterprise to maintain its physical premises in a way that minimizes the risk of injury. When you have been hurt because of a slippery floor or sidewalk, or as a result of inadequate security, you want a knowledgeable lawyer to protect your interests.

At Blackman Legal Group, we have been focusing our practice exclusively on the rights of personal injury victims since 1976. We combine comprehensive knowledge of personal injury law and procedure with thorough preparation, paying close attention to every detail of your case. Because of our knowledge and hard work, we are often able to settle a claim at or above insurance policy limits. We have also obtained verdicts or settlements that exceed $1 million for many clients.

For a free consultation, contact Blackman Legal Group by e-mail, or call our office at 415-585-5200 (toll-free at 866-692-8126) to set up an appointment.


Our attorneys work closely with people who have suffered a personal injury because of negligence or carelessness in the maintenance of a school or university property. We handle cases involving

  • slips and falls. If you have slipped and fallen on wet floors in a hallway, cafeteria, bathroom or any other place in a school or university, we will help you recover the damages you deserve.
  • broken stairways or elevators. We handle injury claims resulting from broken steps, stairways or sidewalks, as well as malfunctioning or defective elevators.
  • inadequate security or lighting. Schools often have many hallways, corridors, bathrooms and other places that can be conducive to an assault, attack or mugging. If you were injured in a darkened hallway or corridor, and that injury could have been avoided with proper lighting or security, we can help you recover for your injuries.

We handle all types of claims relating to injuries — from soft-tissue injuries (bruises or muscle strains) to serious and catastrophic injuries, including brain or spinal cord trauma and loss of limb — suffered at a school or university. We will also handle a wrongful death claim arising out of an injury at a California school or university.

We handle all personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.


At Blackman Legal Group, we offer a free consultation to people who have suffered a personal injury at a California school or university.
