In Blandon v. Advanced Contracting Co ., Mr. Lagnado secured a verdict on behalf of KNR Inc., a demolition subcontractor, limiting its liability to 25%, in the New York State Supreme Court, New York County, before Justice Edward Greenfield. The plaintiff, a 41 year-old building maintenance foreman, had sustained severe injuries, including spinal and ankle fractures, requiring multiple surgeries. He alleged that he had fallen twenty feet through a hole that had been left in the floor after a staircase had been removed and left unprotected by KNR. The jury imposed the majority of liability against the building owner, plaintiff's employer. On appeal, all claims against KNR were dismissed.
