TT&H Attorneys Scott McCarroll and Julia Morrison win summary judgment in Cumberland County trip and fall incident.
April 18, 2019
On April 12, 2019, Attorneys Scott McCarroll and Julia Morrison of TT&H’s Harrisburg office won summary judgment in connection with a fall incident that occurred on the premises of a Cumberland County nonprofit organization. The plaintiff fell off of the side of the nonprofit’s loading dock and claimed that she fell because the loading dock was inadequately sized and unguarded at its edges. During her deposition, the plaintiff admitted that she did not look where she was going prior to stepping off the edge of the dock and that, had she looked, she could have seen the edge of the dock. The Court found that the condition of the loading dock was open and obvious and that the plaintiff simply did not look where she was stepping.
