Plaintiff was injured while crossing Bedford Street when he was struck by the co-defendant driver&rsquo;s vehicle. Plaintiff claimed that the driver&rsquo;s vision was impaired as a result of steam coming from a manhole cover owned by Energy Company. Plaintiff alleged Energy Company was negligent because it allowed steam to rise through the manhole cover and into the street thereby impairing the driver&rsquo;s vision of Plaintiff in the crosswalk. Energy Company denied that it was negligent and alleged it was entitled to summary judgment because Plaintiff&rsquo;s claim alleged a defect or want of repair in a public way, so was governed by the Massachusetts Defect in Public Way Statute, M.G.L. c. 84 &sect;15. Under the statute, Plaintiff was required to give written notice to Energy Company of the allegedly defective condition within thirty (30) days of his injury in order to bring his claim, but Plaintiff failed to provide the required notice within the requisite timeframe. &nbsp;The Court held that Energy Company was entitled to summary judgment and dismissed the Plaintiff&rsquo;s claims against Energy Company.News17 Apr 2017 00:00:00 -0800http://www.campbell-trial-lawyers.com/?t=40&an=66671&format=xmlRona Eli spoke at the 49th Annual Northeast Region of National Black Law Students Association’s Regional Conventionhttp://www.campbell-trial-lawyers.com/?t=40&an=63614&format=xml<p><a href="http://www.campbell-trial-lawyers.com/?t=3&amp;A=12495&amp;format=xml&amp;p=4188">Rona Eli</a>, an attorney at Campbell Campbell Edwards &amp; Conroy, P.C. and active member of the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts (AALAM) and chair of the Diversity Committee for the Massachusetts Chapter of the Federal Bar Association spoke at the 49th Annual Northeast Region of National Black Law Students Association&rsquo;s Regional Convention on Thursday, January 27, 2017 along with the Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Rights division.
