Facing Summary Judgment, Plaintiff Dismisses Negligence Lawsuit Against National Roofing Manufacturer
Billy Newcomb represented a national roofing manufacturer in Forsyth County Superior Court against claims that it failed to maintain a safe working environment for outside vendors. Plaintiff alleged she suffered serious personal injuries when she was struck by a forklift while she was on the company’s premises servicing a firm alarm system. Billy moved for summary judgment on the grounds that Plaintiff contractually waived and released the claims she asserted in the lawsuit. Billy also filed a counterclaim against Plaintiff for contractual indemnity. Rather than respond to the motion for summary judgment, Plaintiff conceded defeat and dismissed the lawsuit.
