Tauber Obtains Summary Judgement in Trip-and-Fall Case

April 8, 2022

Danielle Tauber (Partner-White Plains, NY) obtained summary judgment in Kings County Court on behalf of a real estate management company and a grocery store located on its property. The plaintiff stated that she was lawfully entering the premises when she tripped and fell, allegedly due to dangerous conditions caused by our clients’ negligence.

The court ruled that through the submission of the plaintiff’s own conflicting testimony, the plaintiff lacked evidence and granted the motion for summary judgment based on a lack of triable facts.
