Given the current state of the law in Kentucky, many premises liability actions, especially slip and falls, are no longer summarily dismissed. While that is unfortunate, we work closely with our clients to ensure that you and your business are in the best position to defend your actions and practices if or when trial becomes necessary.
Our attorneys have defended all nature of premises liability claims for both commercial and personal properties. These claims have included, among others, claims involving natural, outdoor hazards, hazardous conditions created by employees, patrons or others, hazardous conditions based upon the design, layout or maintenance of the premises, violation of the applicable building codes or ADA, liability shifting contractual provisions, poor lighting, a failure to warn of hazardous conditions, intentional and/or grossly negligence conduct of employees and invitees and licensees, and liability to trespasser.
Due to the nature of these claims, many do proceed to trial and our attorneys have a strong trial success rate with defense verdicts and directed verdicts. We are also well-versed in liability shifting contractual provisions and assisting our clients to obtain a defense and/or indemnity they are entitled to from third parties.
