Defending Businesses in the Food and Beverage Industry
While our attorneys at Markle • DeLaCruz, LLP are well-known for dram shop and liquor liability defense, we provide a full range of legal services to Texas businesses in the food and beverage industry.
Your business will face more than liquor liability claims or TABC citations over its lifetime. Our firm is committed to offering reliable representation over the life of your business — aggressively defending your interests no matter what dispute you are facing, so you can focus on your long-term success.
A Strong Defense for a Variety of Claims
When someone is injured and sues your business for compensation, you need skillful representation to protect your business’s bottom line. These claims are substantial, and have the potential to seriously impact your business’s operations. Many of our food and beverage industry clients experience claims involving:
- Assault and battery
- Drunk driver accidents
- Slip and fall claims
- Premises liability
- Self-insured personal injury claims
- Nonsubscriber workers’ compensation
We pride ourselves in offering the high-quality representation you would find in a downtown Houston law firm, but at a fair price. That is why many bar and restaurant owners turn to our Clear Lake practice for a trusted defense against these claims.
Nonsubscriber Workers’ Compensation Defense
In Texas, you can choose whether or not you want to have workers’ compensation insurance. If you do subscribe, you are protected from employees filing personal injury claims against you for injuries that occur on the job. If you do not subscribe, you may be the target of a personal injury lawsuit if your employee sustains any work-related injuries.
When you are facing a lawsuit from one of your employees, we are committed to defending your rights. Our lawyers have experience in business law and personal injury, and are familiar with the issues that may affect a food and beverage business in particular. This allows us to offer excellent service and trusted counsel that is designed to help your business succeed.
