Practice Areas: General Liability

Overview

It's a fact – if you drive a car, run a business, or own a home, even minor accidents can have major repercussions. From a fender-bender on the road to a slip and fall in a place of business, legal consequences can be complicated and costly. Repair costs, insurance entanglements, medical bills and litigation – all are possible side effects of even the simplest accident.

We work to protect our clients and minimize their exposure to financial or legal pitfalls. We analyze and defend a wide variety of liability claims, from motor vehicle accidents and premises liability to landlord-tenant complaints and construction defects. Our extensive contacts in the medical and professional communities can provide highly-qualified opinions to defeat or mitigate a plaintiff's claims, and we can employ reconstructionists and other experts to assist in the defense of a case.

We represent clients in almost every facet of general liability defense, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Food borne illness
  • Landlord-tenant issues
  • Construction defects
  • Alternative dispute resolution
  • Insurance coverage

 


Our attorneys also have extensive experience working with brokers, underwriters and claim professionals in the international insurance market, particularly with Lloyds of London.
