Sekas Law Group, LLC is pleased to announce a recent victory in New York’s Appellate Division, First Department for man who was seriously injured after falling while crossing a street in Manhattan. In Casiano v. The City of New York, the Appellate Division unanimously overturned a trial court’s dismissal of this suit due to lack of prior notice of a dangerous condition to the City of New York. Here, we were able to prove on appeal that the City created the condition by installing a dangerous raised device intended to calm traffic within inches of a busy pedestrian crosswalk. Although these cases can be challenging, there are a few ways to overcome dismissals based on lack of prior notice.
