Premises Liability

experience in premises liability

Harman Claytor’s Premises Liability Practice Group has offices in both Virginia and the Washington, DC area handling all aspects of a premises liability claim from initial investigation through appeal. Our services include representation and defense in all state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as in administrative and alternative dispute resolution proceedings.

When addressing premises liability claims, we believe only the most in-depth legal guidance will suffice. As such, we are experienced in evaluating the myriad of liability issues involved in a premises claim, including indemnity and insurance provisions in lease and other agreements. When addressing your case, we do so from a risk-management standpoint while also determining how provisions pertain to your case.

Additionally, our premises liability team has successfully handled a number of precedent-setting cases. We’ve been involved in dismissing claims against property managers, as well as a Virginia Supreme Court case holding that the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act does not include private cause of action for personal injuries. By choosing our legal team as your premise liability claims experts, you will receive prompt, disciplined and proactive guidance based on industry-leading experience.
