On February 4th, Reardon Anderson was successful in persuading a New Jersey Court to dismiss its client from a lawsuit involving a construction site accident. In that matter, Reardon Anderson’s client was the owner of a multimillion dollar housing development which was being constructed in Northern New Jersey. While working on the project as a carpenter, plaintiff alleged to have sustained injuries as a result of stepping into a plumbing hole. Due to his injuries, plaintiff underwent two knee surgeries and claimed that he would require a total knee replacement. At one point during the litigation, plaintiff’s demand was in excess of $500,000.
The plaintiff opposed Reardon Anderson’s motion for summary judgment arguing that the owner of the project owed a non-delegable duty to the plaintiff to provide a safe working environment. After hearing oral argument, the judge granted Reardon Anderson’s motion for summary judgment and dismissed their client from the lawsuit.
