GMR Obtains Summary Judgment in Westchester Case Filed after Slip and Fall Fractured Plaintiff’s Wrist

GMR Senior Associate Samantha Pullman prevailed on a motion for summary judgment dismissing all claims against our clients in a Westchester County slip-and-fall action. Plaintiff alleged that she slipped and fell on an unsecured rug while cleaning the clients’ home, resulting in a fractured wrist requiring surgery.

Samantha argued that this accident could not have occurred in the manner alleged by Plaintiff, but assuming it did, the rug in question was adequately secured and did not constitute a dangerous or defective condition. The Court agreed and found that Plaintiff failed to raise a triable issue of fact in opposition.
