Open & Obvious
Whether the hazardous nature of something is open and obvious may be a relevant issue in litigation. That is, a question exists whether a hazard is both open and obvious in terms of its potential to cause harm. Given our specialized knowledge and experience, we are particularly well-suited for providing analysis that addresses whether or not a condition is open and obvious.
Our qualifications and rates are available upon request.
