Third Party Liability in Walnut Creek, CA and San Francisco, CA

 A significant threat to the viability of any company is the exposure it faces from litigation arising from everyday business activities. Between the world changing and your business changing, you must pay attention to potential new sources of liability.

Sources of liability can arise from four major areas:

  • Your operations while they are being performed
  • Your operations performed by others for you
  • Products that you sell or services you provide after they are sold or work is completed
  • Risks you assume and are responsible for under a contract

Common claims can be brought for pain and suffering, loss of property or loss of use, discrimination, violation of intellectual property rights, harassment, employment practices, or mismanagement, among others.

By collaborating with your legal counsel, Santa Maria provides a level of expertise that helps identify, mitigate and protect your business from these threats.  We are regularly asked to review a variety of business issues including contracts relative to risk management and insurance requirements.
