Court of Appeals

  • The doctrine of primary assumption of risk is a defense that insurance companies will use to prevent people from recovering when they’re engaged in a sporting event.
  • There are 3 courts in NY State, I was agreed upon with at the lower court, and then was heard by 5 judges in appellate court.  Which then enabled a writ to the court of appeals.
  • I argued that the doctrine of primary assumption of risk should not be applicable in this case because my client was not injured at a sporting event or even at a venue.
