Summary judgment was granted in a Queens County construction accident case Calle v. 1411 IC-SIC Property LLC, Index No. 704429/2013 (Supreme Court, Queens County). The plaintiff claimed that during the course of demolishing a ceiling, a beam fell onto him causing severe injuries. The plaintiff moved for summary judgment on his claim for violation of Labor Law section 240(1) arguing that he was not provided with a proper protective device to perform his work.
The Firm successfully defended two summary judgment motions in Supreme Court, Kings County in the case of Crawford v. The North Flats, LLC, Index No. 13076/2013. The plaintiff claimed that he was entitled to summary judgment on his claims of violation of Labor Law sections 240, 241(6) and 200 against the defendants/third-party plaintiffs owner and general contractor. The Firm argued that the clamps of an extension ladder "popped off" causing the ladder to collapse causing injuries.
