TT&H Attorney Jillian Denicola wins appeal from the entry of summary judgment in premises liability action.
August 01, 2019
On July 30, 2019, the Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed the entry of summary judgment in favor of a hotel represented by TT&H Attorney, Jillian Denicola. The claim against the hotel arose out of a trip and fall that occurred when the Plaintiff was exiting the restaurant located on the hotel’s premises. The lower court granted summary judgment, finding that there was simply no evidence connecting Plaintiff’s fall to any alleged dangerous conditions on the property, highlighting the fact that Plaintiff testified that she merely “missed a step.” See https://www.tthlaw.com/tth-attorney-jillian-denicola-wins-summary-judgment-in-trip-and-fall-incident. In affirming the entry of summary judgment for Attorney Denicola’s client, the Superior Court agreed that the Plaintiffs failed to establish proximate causation between any alleged breach of duty by the hotel and the Plaintiff’s fall.
