What Type Of Claim Do You Need To Defend Against?

As litigation defense professionals, we are familiar with the full gamut of allegations that are possible in our highly litigious society. These include:

  • Motor vehicle accident defense – For more than 25 years, members of our accident defense team have provided skilled defense against liability claims arising out of vehicle accidents. This includes both injury claims and wrongful-death allegations.
  • Wrongful death claims defense – Wrongful death cases can pose particular challenges because of the emotional aspects involved. We know how to make effective arguments for limiting our clients’ liability based on the law and facts.
  • New York labor law defense – Construction accidents and other injury claims often involve allegations that New York state labor laws were violated. We have many years of experience defending against these claims, including cases arising under Section 240 or 241 of the New York labor laws.
  • Commercial policy defense – Commercial policies may cover a wide range of events, including injuries and deaths on business premises. We are skilled in defending insurers and their insureds in these matters.
  • Premises liability claims – Many elements can be involved in a claim based on dangerous property conditions. Our firm defends both homeowner liability and commercial liability cases with integrity and skill.

Sometimes a case may have already been ruled upon at the trial court level. We have the proven ability to handle appeals in these cases throughout appellate courts in New York and beyond.
