Summary Judgment – No Evidence of Negligence
Attorney Laura Devine prevailed on a motion for summary judgment on behalf of a rest area gas station within Middlesex County (Massachusetts) after preliminary discovery, including the plaintiff’s deposition. The case involved a store patron who alleged he was struck from above by an accumulation of ice while at the gas pumps of a highway rest area. The Plaintiff filed a negligence action against the gas station and alleged that as a result of the accident he suffered injuries and lost wages. Concord District court allowed the defendant’s motion for summary judgment and found as a matter of law that there was no evidence of negligence on the part of the defendant.
