Defense Verdict–Queens County

Alzugaray v. AAC Douglaston Plaza et. al.
In Alzugaray v. AAC Douglaston Plaza et. al. plaintiff slipped and fell on ice as she exited Macy’s Department store in Douglaston, NY. Our client, Innovative Design and Maintenance, was brought into the action as a third -party by the property owner, AAC Douglaston Plaza. Innovative was contractually obligated to remove snow in the parking lot where plaintiff fell. At trial, Andrea Sacco Camacho successfully argued that our client had no responsibility to clean the area where plaintiff fell nor was the client obligated to inspect the area for snow melt after it plowed the parking lot. The judge directed a verdict in favor of our client after plaintiff and third party plaintiff rested.
