A person who is injured on property may look to the property owner and its insurance company to pay medical bills, lost wages, and other damages, regardless of who is to blame for the injury. Our attorneys have experience handling almost every type of premises liability insurance matter for a variety of businesses, including amusement parks, waterparks, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, sporting arenas, retail stores, schools, and offices. We regularly defend against slips, trips and falls, negligent security, hazardous construction, falling objects, drowning, electrocution, and other types of complex claims for damages.
Our lawyers investigate the claim and consult with top experts to help us piece together what happened and potential exposure to our clients. We calculate the potential value of the claim and strategically negotiate an equitable settlement when warranted by the facts and circumstances. If the plaintiff refuses to settle for the true value of his or her claim, we aggressively fight the claim in court. Our firm recognizes that every client has unique concerns and objectives and we work with them to develop the best approach for their business.
Personal Injury Claims
The legal team at Taylor Day offers a wealth of experience defending businesses directly as well as by means of their insurance carriers against the seemingly endless array of personal injury lawsuits. We are a skilled group of insurance defense attorneys focused on servicing our clients in the most efficient and economical manner possible.
The attorneys at our firm regularly represent homeowners’ insurance carriers in a broad range of insurance claims ranging from water, fire and wind damage to theft and vandalism. We are actively involved at all stages of the case from the initial claim investigation to settlement negotiations to litigating the matter in court including appeals.
Negligent Security Claims
Negligent security claims can have catastrophic impacts on a business. Our lawyers work with businesses and their insurance carriers to determine the right courses of action to defend against these potentially high-impact claims. We thoroughly investigate each claim to determine the potential risks and exposure for our clients and defend the claim with a constant eye on our clients’ best interests.
