Successful Motion for Summary Judgment

Fausto Ortiz v. Luis A. Almonte, Index #: 23847/15

Congratulations to Ivan J. Rodriguez for his successful summary judgment motion in this personal injury case stemming from a 2015 motor vehicle accident. It was our position that the accident was caused solely by the negligence of the defendant in this case. The defendant claimed that he was not responsible for the accident and/or that plaintiff bears some responsibility for the car accident. The court agreed with our position and granted our motion. Having proven that the accident was solely the fault of the defendant, the trial of the case will proceed solely on the issue of the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries.
