Premises Liability – Wholesale Retailer

Attorneys Involved | Michael D. DeMeola, Ashley A. Noel

Michael DeMeola and Ashley Noel obtained judgment as a matter of law in favor of a wholesale retailer in a premises liability action in the Judicial District of New Haven of the Connecticut Superior Court.  The plaintiff alleged that she slipped and fell on leaves accumulated on the exterior sidewalk of the property at which the wholesale retailer was tenant, thereby sustaining a head injury and facial scarring.  On summary judgment, Attorneys DeMeola and Noel successfully argued that their client did not owe the plaintiff a duty of care as a matter of law because it neither possessed nor controlled the area of the property in which the plaintiff allegedly fell pursuant to the language of its lease with the property owner.
