Construction Site Accident
Construction / February 7, 2014
Court/Case No: United States District Court, Eastern District, MI - 2:13-cv-10760-PJD-PJK
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Demand: Non-specific; well in excess of $100,000 (per large six figure comp lien)
Verdict: Summary judgment
Name of Judge(s): Hon. Patrick Duggan
Keys to the Case:
The key in such a case is to know the details of the Funk/Ormsby standard and, thereafter, focus discovery on developing the record to defeat any claim under such standard. Thereafter, it was significant that we briefed and argued to the Court that the Plaintiff was not legally entitled to bring a claim outside of the common work area doctrine, as was being attempted, as defined by the controlling cases.
