Injury on Property: Appeal Won for Slip and Fall Case on Ice

In a case originally argued before the Erie County Supreme Court, Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria represented a pedestrian who brought a personal injury action against a property owner after slipping and falling on a patch of ice outside the owner’s building. The defendant attempted to deny the plaintiff’s claim and get the case dismissed by filing a motion for summary judgment, but the trial court denied the motion. This caused the property owner to appeal the decision to the New York State Appellate Division, Fourth Department, the second-highest court in New York State. John A. Collins, a senior partner at the firm, responded to the appeal on behalf of the injured pedestrian. On March 28, 2014, the Fourth Department ruled in favor of Mr. Collins’s client and affirmed the trial court’s order denying the property owner’s motion for summary judgment.
