At Cremer Spina, we handle all areas of Premises Liability claims including retail, commercial
, residential and construction
. Whether the client is a major construction company, a foreign hotel, a small local business or a national grocery store chain, we have the unique expertise to handle all types of premises liability matters. These types of matters range from a slip and fall, a fall off a dock, a shooting in the parking lot or a crane mishap. Our attorneys also have an extensive background in handling cases involving all types of injuries—from soft-tissue injuries to paralysis to death. As part of our Premises Liability/Retail practice, we have extensive experience handling security cases involving false arrest, assault and battery, malicious prosecution, negligence and intentional torts. We also have significant experience in construction premises cases involving building defects, equipment operation and bodily injury.
As in all of our cases, our Premises Liability and Retail cases are always handled with the client’s best interests in mind, whether that be a quick settlement before suit, discovery and then a mediation or arbitration, or a trial. We focus on the client’s needs and what will be the best outcome and result for the client, including cost considerations. Our Premises Liability and Retail attorneys also focus on providing non-litigation counseling to our clients before a lawsuit is even filed. We provide information and advice to our clients when handling claims immediately after the incident occurs, a practice that leads to more efficient claims handling and allows for many claims to be resolved without a suit being filed. This type of partnership with our clients also allows for more effective handling of the file once it reaches litigation as our attorneys are already involved in the file and have started, or possibly completed, their investigation.
Finally, as part of our Retail practice, we understand that our clients have needs outside of the civil courtroom. Therefore, we provide our clients with representation at administrative hearings including courts such as the Department of Public Health and the Department of Consumer Services. In addition to representing our clients at administrative hearings, we help investigate citations and work with store managers and the corporate office to develop a strategy and plan to help eliminate future fines.
