Skilled Representation For Self-Insured Businesses
Our representation of self-insured businesses has required our attorneys to become involved in a variety of legal matters unique to each client. Several self-insured clients, for example, operate retail businesses with claims relating to snow and ice conditions, design liability, maintenance, wrongful detention, discrimination claims and dram shop (liquor) liability.
Attorneys representing self-insured clients have defended the operation of:
- Product manufacturers
- Horse racing facilities
- Trade associations
- Transportation companies
Defending claims for these clients frequently involves issues of contractual liability, tort liability, statutory liability (e.g., dram shop laws, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, copyright laws, state and federal discrimination statutes, Federal Hazardous Substances Act regulations, environmental laws), and insurance coverage.
