Gasoline Dealer Defense

Florida Gasoline Dealer Defense Lawyers

Lawyers for Gasoline Retailers and Convenience Stores

Attorneys at Marrero & Wydler have served as outside counsel for gas station facilities in numerous legal matters in the State of Florida. We have defended the companies in both state and federal court in cases ranging from personal injury and slip and fall cases, to negligent security, hiring and training claims, as well as wrongful death actions. The firm has also represented these gasoline retailers and convenience stores along with other private and public entities, in employment cases involving Title VII, ADEA, FLSA, FMLA, FCRA, and retaliation claims.

As defense attorneys for the gasoline distributor, station owner, and convenience store operator, this firm has extensive knowledge regarding industry standards and convenience store security measures governed by Florida statutes. In addition to having significant experience in litigating alleged defects and hazards on gas station properties, we have also vigorously defended liquor liability claims which permit the recovery of punitive damages. Specific to the representation of petroleum suppliers and retail stores, it is the knowledge associated with business operations that is valued by our clients. We review crime grids, customer counts, fuel dispensing and maintenance records to defend liability issues that arise on the property.

While defending these cases, we pride ourselves on developing a record favorable to dispositive motions from the onset of litigation, our thoroughness through the discovery process, and being prepared for trial. We investigate the scene of alleged incidents to preserve evidence and retain highly qualified experts to limit damage exposure early in litigation. We conduct pre-deposition and pre-trial conferences prior to depositions or trial testimony provided by every employee. These meetings entail the comprehensive review of company policies, practices and the alleged incident.

Marrero & Wydler have more than 25 years combined experience in representing gas station operators. We provide creative and cost-effective outcomes depending on the circumstances of various cases. We have successfully protected gasoline retail facilities and convenience stores in many serious contested controversies in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties.
