We Defend Property Owners, Tenants, and Insurers Against All Types of Premises Liability Claims

Property owners and tenants face legal risks on a daily basis. Premises liability laws provide strong protections to customers, visitors, and guests—and they even protect trespassers in some cases. At Rendigs, we rely on more than 75 years experience to effectively defend property owners and tenants in premises liability litigation. We serve as defense counsel for premises liability insurers as well.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle

Within our premises liability practice, we defend property owners, tenants, and insurers against all types of claims. With offices in Cincinnati, Louisville and Boulder, we handle cases throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Colorado involving allegations of:

  • Dangerous product displays
  • Defective property conditions
  • Elevator and escalator malfunctions
  • Failure to fix property hazards
  • Failure to warn of property hazards
  • Negligent property management
  • Negligent security
  • Violations of safety requirements
  • Walkway and stairway obstructions
  • Other property-related health and safety risks

In many cases, property owners and tenants can face liability not only for health and safety risks of which they are aware but for health and safety risks of which they should be aware as well. This can present challenges for asserting a successful defense, and it takes skilled litigation counsel to avoid unnecessary liability in these cases. Our premises liability attorneys rely on centuries of combined experience to defend our clients by all means available; and, while we target settlement when it makes sense to do so, we routinely litigate premises liability claims through trial.

We Also Handle Insurance Coverage Disputes and Other Related Matters

In addition to defending companies against plaintiffs’ premises liability claims, we also handle insurance coverage disputes and other matters arising out of these claims. This includes disputes between property owners and commercial tenants involving indemnification obligations, representations and warranties, and other contractual matters. In many cases, commercial parties can use their contractual rights to shift liability for claims arising due to factors beyond their control. Depending on the nature of a plaintiff’s claim, property owners and tenants may be able to shift liability to contractors, architecture or engineering firms, or other third parties as well.

We take the same strategic and cost-effective approach to every premises liability case we handle, and we rely on our experience to effectively address the unique implications of accidents occurring at various types of properties. This includes properties such as:

  • Apartment buildings and condominiums
  • Bars, restaurants, and nightclubs
  • Colleges and universities
  • Construction sites
  • Government buildings and public spaces
  • Hotels, motels, and resorts
  • Medical facilities
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities
  • Ports, marinas, and other maritime facilities
  • Sports and entertainment venues
  • Swimming pools
  • Warehouses and industrial facilities
