Allegations of injury or loss can have a significant financial effect on companies, regardless of their size. For instance, a company sued for a workplace injury could be forced to pay thousands of dollars in fines, court fees, and legal costs. Meanwhile, false allegations could negatively affect the company’s reputation, cutting into profits and causing significant loss, while businesses that are sued by others who claim to have been injured on their property could end up paying out of pocket for expensive medical bills. For these reasons, it is important for those who are facing allegations of injury or loss to speak with an experienced liability defense attorney about their legal options.

General liability claims cover a wide range of issues, ranging from property damage and personal injury to wrongful termination and negligence. Unfortunately, businesses are often at a higher risk of being sued for these types of issues, simply because they are in the public eye and usually have considerably more funds than an individual. Recognizing these risks, many business owners purchase general liability insurance to cover claims made by customers or other third parties. Unfortunately, insurers do not always agree to pay out a claim, whether due to bad faith or because the language of the policy precludes it. In these situations, being represented by an experienced liability attorney can make all the difference in whether or not a company is forced to pay large sums out-of-pocket.
In California, all employers are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to cover the cost of medical bills and lost wages in the event that an employee is injured on the job. With a few exceptions, this is the only means of compensation available to employees who are hurt at work. Unfortunately, many companies still find themselves on the receiving end of lawsuits from disgruntled employees who may be arguing that their employer’s extreme negligence caused or contributed to their accident and entitles them to additional damages. Consulting with an experienced liability defense attorney is critical in these cases, as unrepresented companies stand to lose a significant amount of funds and business.
Companies that manufacture products on a large scale are often blamed for injuries allegedly caused by their products. While some claims are legitimate, others are merely dishonest attempts to obtain compensation. Alternatively, a manufacturer could be accused of producing a defective product when the truly liable party is actually another entity, such as the shipping company responsible for transporting the goods. At Valiant Law, our liability defense attorneys represent and defend a variety of businesses, including commercial, retail, and industrial companies, against a wide range of product claims brought by both single consumers and multiple parties.
