Karen Krogman Daum secured dismissal of a slip and fall claim in Onondaga County

Karen J. Krogman Daum, Esq., successfully briefed a motion for summary judgment and secured dismissal of the action in Onondaga County Supreme Court. Plaintiff alleged she slipped and fell on an “egg-like” substance on a local grocery store’s floor. Plaintiff did not know how or how long the substance was on the floor. Defendant established it did not create or have actual or constructive notice of an alleged slippery condition through its ongoing inspections of the store’s floor. Just five minutes before plaintiff’s fall, a store employee inspected the floor and found it was dry. In opposition, plaintiff only speculated additional surveillance footage would have demonstrated notice to defendant. Judge Karalunas granted defendant’s motion and dismissed the case.
