Defending Businesses Against Personal Injury Claims
Melito & Adolfsen P.C. defends businesses and nonprofit organizations of all sizes against personal injury claims. This includes slip-and-fall accidents (premises liability), personal injury and product liability claims. Our typical client is either self-insured or has traditional insurance with a high deductible that warrants fighting the claim over simply paying the settlement. Our initial goal is always to settle claims through mediation or arbitration, but we are always prepared to take the claim to court if necessary.
Common Types Of Personal Injury Defense Claims
We represent clients in a wide range of industries defending insurance defense claims, including personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. Listed below are some of the types of cases we see most often.
Nursing home liability claims: Our legal team has defended nursing homes and medical professionals against charges of negligence and abuse. We represent clients in governmental agency hearings across the state, including the New York State Department of Health.
Commercial premises liability: Slip-and-fall accidents on commercial property and injuries allegedly caused by a failure to provide sufficient security are commonplace in New York. We defend businesses and nonprofits of all sizes against all forms of premises liability claims.
Construction accidents: We defend lawsuits alleging injuries resulting from violations of safe work environment requirements in sections 200, 240 and 241 of New York Labor Law. Our attorneys also represent clients in disputes over additional insured clauses and utilizing the anti-subrogation rule.
