Attorney Rebecca Devlin Receives Summary Judgement In Supreme Suffolk

Attorney Rebecca K. Devlin’s motion for summary judgment was granted and the Court dismissed the case against an ambulette company and its driver. The plaintiff was a passenger in the ambulette and was injured when it was involved in an accident with another vehicle.  The ambulette driver claimed that he was struck by a the other driver as it crossed into his path when making a left turn. The other driver claimed that the ambulette driver was speeding and struck the rear portion of her vehicle after she had almost entirely completed her left turn. The Court agreed with the ambulette driver that he had the right of way and was entitled to assume that the other driver would obey the traffic laws that required her to yield. The Court rejected as a basis of imposing liability any speculation concerning the possible accident avoidance measures that could have been undertaken by the ambulette driver.
