Defense Verdict for Partner Jeff Pincus in Municipal Liability Case

Partner Jeff Pincus obtained a defense verdict in a Municipal Liability action in Suffolk County.  The plaintiff initiated an action after a trip and fall incident resulting in a spinal compression fracture and lumbar fusion.  Plaintiff argued that defendant municipality’s records demonstrated that they were aware of the defective and dangerous condition on which she fell.  She argued further that they had been put on notice of the condition months before the accident but did not act timely in repairing the condition.  At trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Lewis Johs’ client finding that the area in question was reasonably safe as defined by the trial court.
