Defending Businesses Against Commercial Premises Liability Claims
In today’s litigious society, even a minor premises liability accident can result in a prolonged lawsuit. Without proper legal representation, your business could face serious out-of-pocket expenses and increased insurance premiums. In fact, just settling a commercial premises liability claim could seriously jeopardize the future of your enterprise.
Montfort, Healy, McGuire & Salley LLP, in Garden City, New York, has aggressively defended the rights of those facing commercial premises liability claims since 1950. Our practice was built on the principles of honesty, integrity and communication – principles we still adhere to more than 50 years later. We protect the interests of business owners, the self-insured and major insurance companies.
Types of Commercial Premises Liability Claims
An accident taking place on commercial property must be handled with the utmost care. First and foremost, the insurance carrier must be notified immediately. It is then prudent to speak with a knowledgeable defense attorney as soon as possible. The sooner evidence is collected and witnesses are interviewed, the better the defense strategy that can be developed.
We skillfully handle all types of commercial premises liability claims, including:
- Slip and fall accidents on sidewalks, in parking lots and in store aisles
- Allegations of negligent security in parking lots and ramps
- Injuries caused by objects falling from store shelves
- Physical and sexual assault on business property
- Acts by third parties on your property
Protecting You From Liability
We strive to resolve commercial premises liability cases as efficiently as possible. To that end, our attorneys work to settle disputes through pre-trial mediations and negotiations whenever possible. A properly conducted pre-trial discovery and investigation is often the most effective way to protect your interests in court and during mediation. With an understanding of all the issues, we will develop the best strategy to protect you against liability.
