Korman and Mascia Victorious in Assumption of Risk Case at the Appellate Division, Second DepartmentApril 22, 2016 |
Cheryl F. Korman and Henry Mascia, members of the Firm’s Litigation & Appeals Practice Group, obtained a victory in an assumption of risk case at the Appellate Division, Second Department. In Augustin v. grand Prix New York Racing, the plaintiff commenced this action to recover damages for personal injuries sustained when she crashed a go-kart at the defendant’s facility. Mascia and Korman convinced the Second Department that the defendant was entitled to summary judgment dismissing the complaint because plaintiff assumed the risks of a recreational activity and defendant did not unreasonably increase the risks of the activity beyond the dangers inherent in the activity.
