12/1/2020- Associate Mohamed Ayoub Secures Voluntary Discontinuance
MMG Associate Attorney, Mohmed Ayoub secured a voluntary discontinuance of all claims against the client, fully absolving the client of any liability.
Representing a construction subcontractor named as a direct defendant in Abraham Ruiz, v. Parkchester South Condominium Inc., et al., MMG obtained video footage of the accident, along with pertinent supporting documentation, proving that the client was neither involved in the accident nor active in the area where the incident occurred. Plaintiff alleged general negligence and violations of Labor Law Sections 200, 240 and 241(6), claiming that he fell from a defective sidewalk shed, and he was not provided with adequate safety devices to prevent his fall. The video footage showed that the accident occurred on the sidewalk shed erected on the exterior of the building, whereas the client’s scope of work was exclusively on the roof of the premises. Moreover, the supporting documentation proved that the client had no role in supplying, erecting and/or maintaining the sidewalk shed. As a result the action was discontinued.
