Campbell Conroy & O’Neil obtains summary judgment in negligence action

December 2019

Brian P. Voke and Ashley L. McCormack recently obtained summary judgment in a negligence case filed in the Middlesex Superior Court. The plaintiff alleged negligence by our client, a national retail bookseller, who purportedly fell on “something slick” while shopping at the store.  The Court held that the plaintiff failed to demonstrate that the store created the “slick” condition, or knew or reasonably should have known that there was a condition on the floor which presented a fall risk. The Court granted summary judgment, ruling that the plaintiff had no reasonable expectation of proving that the defendant breached its duty of care.
