Premises Liability

Reed Armstrong has successfully defended many clients against premise liability claims in a wide variety of commercial and homeowner circumstances. Our premises liability cases include the defense of homeowners, landlords, property managers, retailers, commercial proprietors, industrial concerns and other property owners and operators in claims for death, personal injury and property damage from fires, falls, mold, lead, asbestos and other toxins, construction accidents, industrial accidents, asphyxiation, confined space, electrical shock and electrocution among other claimed causes.

We are well versed in defending insureds and clients for natural conditions on land, natural accumulations of ice and snow, and open and obvious conditions. Defenses unique to landlords based upon lease provisions are employed when available. Our experience with insurance law permits us insights into risk shifting and other potentially liable parties. We understand the interaction of liability issues between owners, contractors and employers, statutory and contractual limitations to those liabilities, and waivers of those limitations.
