Senior Counsel John Horan is Awarded Summary Judgment

Attorney John Horan successfully obtains summary dismissal. Plaintiff alleged injury while during the course of his employment when a hose filled with hydraulic fluid burst causing injury to plaintiff’s wrist requiring nine surgeries and permanent partial loss of use of his dominant hand. John moved to have the action dismissed. It was his position that, although the client is a distributor of the type of hose involved, they sold only a small amount of hoses to the employer prior to the date of the incident. In the motion John argued that it would be impossible for the plaintiff to prove that the subject hose came from our client’s distributorship. The Court agreed and found that plaintiff’s action against our client was based upon speculation and conjecture warranting summary judgment and dismissal.
