Our clients own property, and from time to time people are injured. Sometimes it is an employee; often, it is a visitor. These claims can range anywhere from a slip and fall to a toxic exposure claim. The issues range from causation, to damages, to the status of the injured party, to the owner’s knowledge of the dangerous condition. We explore these issues thoroughly and develop defenses with an eye toward trial, as well as an eye toward entering negotiations from a position of strength.
Our premises liability lawyers have represented national grocery chains, convenience stores, multi-family residences, manufacturing plants, and office buildings. Depending on the type of case, we design a strategy to serve the client’s interests, whether it is to minimize cost and achieve a quick settlement or retain experts and develop a solid yet efficient defense. Often, our reputation as trial lawyers is sufficient to force a quick and cost effective settlement.
