Michael Kosar and Jordan Freeman of Marks O’Neill’s New Jersey office secured summary judgment on behalf of their client, a paving contractor, in a premises liability lawsuit. The plaintiff alleged that uneven sidewalk slabs constituted a dangerous condition causing her to trip and fall and sustain numerous injuries. The sidewalk was owned by a private housing corporation, which alleged that our client’s roadway resurfacing work adjacent to the sidewalk disturbed the soil underneath causing unevenness in the slabs. Following oral argument, the Court agreed that our client did not owe a duty of care to the plaintiff.
