At RAWLE & HENDERSON LLP our attorneys defend both personal injury and property damage claims arising out of the construction process. They are experienced in the law as well as actual construction techniques since several have backgrounds in the building industry. This allows for a comprehensive defense of owners, developers, trade contractors, construction managers, architects and design and engineering professionals.
RAWLE & HENDERSON lawyers are well versed in the complex contractual provisions for indemnity and insurance obligations flowing amongst owners, general contractors, prime contractors and subcontractors. These contract issues frequently require initiation or defense of declaratory judgment actions to define these obligations.
The Firm’s attorneys are also well versed in the legal defenses available in construction-related litigation and regularly develop strategies in such areas as worker’s compensation immunity for employers, the statutory employer defense for general contractors and the peculiar risk exception to the rule of non-liability for a property owner for general contractor’s activities.
For all phases of construction, RAWLE & HENDERSON LLP can provide experienced assistance and advice.
