DSB’s trial attorney team obtained a defense verdict on a liability jury trial in Supreme Court, Kings County. Plaintiff alleged that he sustained injuries to his back, knees, and hand and subsequently underwent two surgeries, after he fell from a ladder while installing cable at defendant’s rental property. Plaintiff alleged the fall occurred because a decorative cornice that lined the top of the building’s façade was in an unsafe condition, which caused it to collapse under the pressure of plaintiff’s work ladder, causing Plaintiff to fall. The jury returned a unanimous verdict that the condition was not unsafe.
