Reardon Anderson, LLC Granted a Summary Judgement in Fall Accident

We are happy to report we were able to obtain a summary judgment in a recent case. The Plaintiff in the case was the victim of a fall, when they slipped on ice in the parking lot of a national bookstore. The Plaintiff sued our clients, the national bookstore in question, as well as the national real estate company that owned the property and the snow removal company contracted to remove snow and ice from the property. In the accident, the Plaintiff sustained significant orthopedic injuries to their ankle, which required multiple surgeries to repair.

Throughout the course of the litigation, we requested that our clients be dismissed from the case, as we maintained they had no liability for the accident. The Plaintiff refused to dismiss our clients. At the end of the discovery, we filed for a summary judgment. In our moving papers and in our oral argument, we successfully argued that the real estate company that owned the property and the bookstore that was a tenant of the property breached no duty of care in regards to the Plaintiff. If faulted existed, it would be borne by the snow removal company, which did not adequately protect the parking lot against ice.

Upon hearing the oral argument, the court granted a summary judgment. Our clients were dismissed with prejudice, barring the Plaintiff from bringing another action against our clients on the same claim. We’re excited about this victory for our clients, and we are happy to know they will remain protected from liability in this lawsuit.
