In this action to recover damages for injuries sustained after the plaintiff fell from a 24-foot ladder while cleaning windows in a Midtown Manhattan office building, the Appellate Division, First Department, in accordance with M&H’s arguments on appeal, held that there were triable issues of fact as to whether a falling ceiling tile, which struck Plaintiff before he fell from the ladder, constituted a superceding, intervening cause of the incident.
