Rawle & Henderson has a lengthy history of defending business and property owners in the area of premises liability. The Firm serves clients that range from local and national operators of management companies to hospitality and service entities. These include municipalities, restaurants, retail stores, places of worship, stadiums, hospitals and nursing homes.
The cases within the scope of this practice involve practically every type of tort, including construction defects, “owner out of possession” responsibility, trivial defects, and improper maintenance and repair of the premises. Rawle & Henderson is well equipped to address contractual or common law indemnification disputes and seek recovery from responsible parties on behalf of our clients.
The Firm is staffed and equipped to handle any size case in this field, and give it the attention it needs.
Many premises liability suits are resolved by settlement. A number of clients see us as the Firm they wish to use for cases that are not likely settlement candidates and whose resolution must come from the most time-honored arbiter in the legal system—the jury. We are experienced in these types of cases and the challenges they present.
