We draw upon our diverse backgrounds and experiences to successfully handle general liability matters on behalf of insurance carriers, businesses and organizations of all sizes and shapes. Our general liability defense lawyers are skilled practitioners who know how to accurately identify and evaluate legal issues and develop innovative, cost-conscious strategies that best serve the needs of our clients.

KDV’s general liability defense attorneys take a comprehensive approach to general liability matters. We have an in-depth understanding of the law and the various industries in which our clients operate. Our lawyers also take the time to get to know our clients’ companies and work closely with them to develop plans and approaches designed to protect their legal, business and financial interests. We are widely recognized as a proactive group of lawyers who help our clients craft practical and economically sound practices aimed at preventing and minimizing liability.

When general liability claims surface, KDV attorneys take swift action to analyze the issues and assess the potential risks and exposure involved. While our objective is to resolve these matters as early as possible, our attorneys handle cases at every stage of the process, from the initial investigation through pre-trial, trial, post-trial and appeal. We are skilled trial lawyers with deep experience trying cases before judges and juries in state and federal courts in the jurisdictions where we practice.

Handling a Broad Scope of General Liability Matters

KDV’s general liability defense lawyers work to protect and advance our clients’ interests in a wide array of general liability matters, such as:

  • Automobile. The general liability defense lawyers at KDV defend clients in personal injury and property damage claims involving automobiles and other motorized vehicles. We understand the automobile insurance industry and work closely with our clients to evaluate and resolve these liability claims in the most favorable manner possible. When an accident occurs, our lawyers undertake a thorough evaluation of the coverage provided under the parties’ insurance contracts and investigate the accident to determine causation, injuries and potential damages.
  • Property Damage Liability. KDV’s attorneys handle and resolve a diverse range of property damage claims, including claims involving construction defects. We defend property owners, general contractors and other parties in claims alleging water, storm, mold, plumbing, foundation and other damages as well as business interruption and loss of value of the property.
  • Construction Accidents and Defects. The working relationships between general contractors, subcontractors, and various tradesmen can be confusing. When an accident occurs, questions quickly surface as to which party is legally responsible. The attorneys at KDV have decades of collective experience handling these types of complex accident liability cases across the country representing general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, independent contractors, building/property owners and other parties.
  • Premises Liability. The lawyers in KDV’s General Liability Practice handle premises liability cases involving commercial and residential properties. Whether the claim involves a slip and fall injury, a physical attack or another type of dangerous or hazardous condition, our attorneys undertake an early assessment of the claim and work to develop a solid defense strategy that protects our clients from exposure.
