Claire Rush and Francesca Sabbatino have spent their careers defending property owners, tenants, sub tenants, business owners and governmental entities against premises liability lawsuits. We have defended all types of premises claims from slip or trip and falls resulting from transient or structural conditions to allegations of physical and/or sexual assault arising out of claimed negligent security. Our strategy is to investigate claims early and thoroughly, work closely with experts to develop both liability and causation defenses and actively pursue claims for contractual indemnification and additional insured status. Our extensive knowledge of the relevant building codes, construction and architectural standards permit us to evaluate these claims and develop a resolution strategy whether through dispositive motion, settlement or trial. We advocate aggressively defending at trial those claims which lack corroboration.
