October 15, 2018
Monica O’Neill & Chris Gallagher, attorneys in TT&H’s Philadelphia office, recently won summary judgment in connection with a trip and fall incident at a construction site in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The incident occurred on New Year’s Day during the afternoon hours. The Plaintiff allegedly tripped and fell over a hose located in the street near the construction site. The Plaintiff claimed that the hose was hazardous, improperly maintained and a dangerous condition. Monica and Chris were able to establish through discovery that their client did not have any ownership interest in the property or the hose and that their client was not near the property at the time of the accident. The Court agreed with Monica and Chris, finding that their client bore no responsibility for the Plaintiff’s injuries and that summary judgment should be entered in its favor.
