We thoroughly investigate claims arising from alleged defects on land or in buildings.

We thoroughly investigate claims arising from alleged defects on land or in buildings.

Property owners have the duty and obligation to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe manner. This obligation generally requires that their premises remain safe from foreseeable criminal acts of third parties and that stairs /walkways and common areas are free of defects and dangerous conditions. The premises owners or managing agents we represent may also be responsible for elevator maintenance, swimming pool safety, chemical exposures and slippery conditions, among a variety of other responsibilities.

Additionally, we represent landlords in defending against security breach claims. Many of these claims arise out of broken locks, security system breaches or other property defects that may have led to a breach or attack.

We thoroughly investigate claims arising from alleged defects on land or in buildings and consult with qualified architects, engineers and other experts. 

Malapero & Prisco evaluates the liability, indemnification and insurance issues often present in such cases and utilizes its expertise in these areas to formulate the most complete and comprehensive defense strategy for our clients.
