Premises Liability Defense

For property owners and the insurance companies that provide coverage for injuries that happen on their property, our attorneys can provide the skilled defense necessary to prevent unnecessary exposure to liability. We represent retail store owners, apartment building owners, commercial property owners and any other type of property owner facing potential liability for an injury that happened on their property.

An effective defense against a premises liability claim looks at a number of questions:

  • Was there an actual defect that caused the injury? — We will investigate whether a defect actually existed and whether that defect was the cause of the plaintiff's injuries.
  • Was there notice of the defect? — Did our client know there was a defect? Was there time to correct the defect before the injury happened?
  • Was there any actual damage? — Was the plaintiff actually injured on-site? What was the extent of the injury? Did any pre-existing condition affect the extent of the injury?
  • Is the property lease structured favorably for our client? — Many of our clients are lessees or lessors of commercial properties. We will examine the lease for potential indemnification.

We defend against a range of premises liability claims, including:

  • Slip and fall/trip and fall
  • Negligent security
  • Toxic exposure
