Premises Liability

Our attorneys have significant experience in defending individuals, businesses, and organizations against claims arising out of ownership or occupancy of property. Such claims often arise in connection with allegations involving:

  • Dangerous conditions and maintenance and care of property
  • Inadequate security and assault or other wrongful actions of third parties, including sexual assault
  • Wrongful detention or false arrest
  • Dram shop and social host liability
  • Elevator and escalator injuries
  • Negligent hiring, retention, or supervision of staff
  • Toxic exposure
  • Adulterated food

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of issues arising from contractual indemnification, as well as governmental and recreational use immunity, and the elevated risks and duties of owners and occupiers of myriad types of premises and businesses such as apartment complexes, restaurants, retail establishments, malls and shopping centers, commercial buildings, hospitals, and casinos.
