Category: General Liability | Nursing Home Liability | Tags: summary judgment, nursing home

In an action alleging negligence, CG&P was awarded summary judgment dismissing all claims against its client, a rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility. Plaintiff alleges that she suffered serious injuries after slipping and falling on a patch of ice in the parking lot of CG&P’s client’s facility. The Court agreed with CG&P’s arguments that its client did not create the alleged icy condition and did not have actual or constructive notice of it. Moreover, CG&P convinced the Court that the ice accumulated the night before the alleged accident and that a reasonably sufficient time had not lapsed since the cessation of the storm for its client to take sufficient protective measures. The case was handled by CG&P Partner, James Connors, and Christopher Rogers, Of Counsel to the Firm.
