Fernandez v. Salmar Properties, LLC, et al. (Supreme Court, Kings County)
Representing a general contractor hired by the property owners, we successfully
demonstrated that the asphalt paving work being performed by plaintiff and his
employer in the building’s parking lot was outside of the scope of renovation work that
our client was contracted to perform at the building and that our client did not exercise
supervisory control over the work being performed by plaintiff’s employer; therefore, our
client had no duty to plaintiff under the Labor Law or common law negligence.
