The “Completed and Accepted Work Doctrine”

This is an interesting ruling. The good guys win one for a change.

The Court of Appeals affirmed the summary judgment based on the “completed and accepted work” doctrine. The court, quoting Price stated the “completed and accepted work doctrine provides ‘that an independent contractor is not liable for injuries to third parties occurring after the contractor has completed the work and it has been accepted by the owner…a fortiori, an independent contractor is not liable where the injury is not due to the condition in which he left the work”.
