Third Party Liability Defense

Lambdin & Chaney’s attorneys have successfully defended numerous liability claims in state and federal courts on behalf of all types of defendants, including individuals, employers, professionals and businesses.  We understand and effectively execute the defense of tort claims beginning with early assessment of potential liability and damages, settlement opportunities throughout the life of the case, and efficient trial preparation. We employ all tools at our disposal to achieve the resolution of the case desired by our client and relish our reputation as formidable trial opponents. Some examples of our trial successes in this area follow:

Intentional Torts – In Jefferson County District Court, we obtained a defense verdict for our two individual clients who were accused of assault and battery.  The jury found that our clients were acting in self-defense.

Employer Liability – We successfully defended an employer sued when its process server, a convicted felon with prior assaults, physically assaulted a member of the public.The jury found that the plaintiff was primarily at fault for initiating the altercation and rendered a defense verdict against the employer.
