Partner Jeffrey E. Hurd, Esq. Gets a No Cause at Trial in St. Lawrence County

Attorney Jeffrey Hurd got a no cause at a trial in St. Lawrence County.  Plaintiff claimed that he slipped and fell on a ramp outside a hospital emergency department because the ramp was hazardous due to a steep slope, lack of handrails, and slippery paint.  Plaintiff also argued that the ramp was not in compliance with the building code.  Mr. Hurd successfully argued that the ramp was reasonably safe, not a hazard, and that the subject building code did not apply to the ramp as there was no new construction or substantial renovation at the premises.
