TT&H Attorneys Ryan Blazure and Joe Shields Win Summary Judgment for Worldwide Retailer
August 30, 2022
Ryan Blazure and Joe Shields of TTH’s Wilkes-Barre office recently won summary judgment for a well-known worldwide retailer in Tioga County. In the suit, the Plaintiff alleged that she slipped and stumbled due to spilled cooking oil, which she testified she had not seen previously. Similarly, the Plaintiff could not establish the retailer’s notice of the oil.
In a single-line Order, Judge Wheeler of the Tioga County Court of Common Pleas entered judgment in favor of the retailer. The claimed damages included medical liens exceeding $21,000, as a result of extensive surgery to repair a torn quadriceps tendon and post-surgical therapy.
