Morrison Mahoney partner, Ted Murphy recently secured a defense verdict for the prime designer and builder of the nation’s submarine fleet.

The case arose out an alleged knee injury involving a marine painter at our client’s nuclear shipyard.  Although the case involved several issues, the trial judge agreed with our threshold defense that plaintiff knew or, in the exercise of reasonable diligence, should have known about the relationship between his injury and his permanent disability one day longer than the statute of limitations permitted and dismissed the complaint as time barred. 

Ted also obtained summary judgment for the same client involving a second allegedly injured employee.
