On Friday, June 7, 2024, Sweeney & Sheehan Partner Louis J. Vogel, Jr. obtained Summary Judgment on behalf of a contractor in the New Jersey Superior Court, Law Division, Camden County.  The Plaintiff fell more than two stories from a roof.  He alleged to have fallen due to a dangerous and hazardous condition created by the contractor.   The Plaintiff sustained catastrophic injuries in the multi-story fall, including multiple fractures requiring surgical interventions.  Plaintiff filed negligence claims against the contractor.  After briefing and oral argument, the Court granted summary judgment, concluding that the Plaintiff failed to sustain its burden of proof and the evidence of record did not establish that any act or omission of the contractor was the proximate cause of the Plaintiff’s fall.
