Concrete Company Not Responsible for Woman's Slip and Fall.
We obtained obtained summary judgment on all cross-claims in favor of our client, a regional concrete company. In this action, the plaintiff slipped and fell on dust and construction debris in New York City. Our client was performing work at an adjacent building. The plaintiff alleged the dust and debris was created by our client’s work, as well as by subcontractors who were performing work within the subject building. Deposition testimony established that our client did not produce the white powdery substance that the plaintiff claims caused her fall. Neither the plaintiff nor any co-defendants raised any triable issues of fact, and the court granted our motion and dismissed all direct and cross-claims asserted against our client.
