The Monson Law Firm Wins Summary Judgment on Behalf of McMath Construction Company

Rachel L. Flarity of The Monson Law Firm won a Motion for Summary Judgment in the 22nd Judicial District Court for the Parish of St. Tammany on behalf of McMath Construction, LLC in the case entitled “Norman Coscino v. McMath Construction Company, Christwood Retirement Community, ABC Insurance Company, and DEF Insurance Company.” In this case, plaintiff, a subcontractor, was injured on a construction site after a fall and filed suit against the general contractor and property owner. In dismissing the claims against the contractor, the court agreed that even as a subcontractor, plaintiff’s claims were governed by the exclusive workers’ compensation remedies of LSA-R.S. 23:1032 and could not be pursued in tort.
