Mark Giannotti of Marks, O’Neill’s Philadelphia office was successful in obtaining summary judgment on behalf of his client. Plaintiff was an inpatient resident at Defendants’ drug and alcohol facility when he was assaulted by two other residents in the men’s bathroom. Plaintiff suffered a fractured jaw and back-related injuries as a result. Plaintiff filed a premises liability action in Philadelphia County alleging that his injuries were sustained as a result of Defendants’ failure to provide a safe living environment. Defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing that, inter alia, Plaintiff’s recovery was barred pursuant to the Assumption of the Risk Doctrine and that his own negligence exceeded that of Defendants’. The Court agreed granting Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment and dismissing Plaintiff’s action with prejudice.
