DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, with costs.
The Supreme Court properly granted that branch of the third-party defendant's motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the third-party causes of action for common-law indemnification and contribution. In response to the third-party defendant's showing that the plaintiff did not sustain a grave injury as defined by Workers' Compensation Law § 11, no triable issue of fact was raised (see Rubeis v Aqua Club, Inc., 3 NY3d 408; DePaola v Albany Med. Coll., 40 AD3d 678; O'Berg v MacManus Group, Inc., 33 AD3d 599; Fitzpatrick v Chase Manhattan Bank, 285 AD2d 487, 487-488; see generally Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320, 324).
RIVERA, J.P., ANGIOLILLO, DICKERSON and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
