Protection For Big-Box Retail Stores Against Liability For Injuries

National chain retail store owners and the insurance companies that provide coverage to them against liability for injuries on their property need effective liability defense representation. Slip-and-fall accidents and other types of common premises liability injuries can unnecessarily drain valuable resources. We can help protect businesses from the harm an injured shopper can create.

Holding People Accountable For Failing To Exercise Care

People have a responsibility to take care when they are in public. Too many people fail to properly exercise the requisite amount of care and become injured because of it. While property owners have a duty to provide safe premises, there are limits to that liability that many who are injured do not recognize. We can help ensure that your business is not held liable when someone’s own carelessness is the primary reason they were injured.

The two main issues in defending a premises liability case include:

  • Defect — We will investigate as to whether or not an actual defect existed that caused the injury in question. We will also investigate the timeline of when the defect first occurred and whether or not it was the actual cause of the plaintiff’s injury.
  • Notice — Lack of notice can be an effective defense against liability. Did the property owner know about the defect? How long had the defect existed? We can show that the property owner took reasonable measures to detect and remedy defects.
