Summary Judgment in Forklift Accident Litigation

Chris Zulanas and David Gordon obtained summary judgment on behalf of a large forklift distribution and maintenance company. The firm’s client was sued for allegedly creating a hazardous condition at plaintiff’s work place after she sustained serious injuries because of slipping and falling in hydraulic fluid that leaked from a forklift. The firm’s client performed in-house maintenance of the onsite fleet of forklifts. Following discovery, Friedman’s lawyers successfully argued the firm’s client was due to be dismissed from the lawsuit as a matter of law. No appeal followed.
