Insurance Coverage Litigation
Our attorneys are also experienced in enforcing indemnification and insurance provisions of construction agreements to transfer liability from owners, general contractors and construction managers to the parties and employers responsible for the conditions and acts giving rise to these injury claims.

Zealous Representation In Premises Liability Claims
Property owners and lessees have a legal duty to individuals lawfully visiting their premises to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition.
There are many factors that go into a determination of liability for a property owner or lessee, including whether the owner or lessee caused the condition, if he or she knew or should have known about the condition on the property, and whether the condition was a substantial factor in causing the injury.
Our attorneys have experience handling the following types of premises liability cases:
- Slip and falls
- Toxic substances, including lead paint and mold exposure
- Burns and explosions
- Swimming accidents
