DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, with costs.
In view of the plaintiff's allegations as to the causes of his injury, the appellants failed to submit evidence sufficient to establish, prima facie, that they were not liable for the plaintiff's accident (see Rivello v Waldron, 47 NY2d 297, 302; Mendez v City of New York, 7 AD3d 766, 767-768; Baraban v Orient-Express Hotels, 292 AD2d 203, 204; Frederick v Lansdown Invs. of N.Y., 228 AD2d 300, 301; cf. Dooley v Peerless Importers, Inc., 42 AD3d 199, 205).
Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly denied that branch of the appellants' motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against them.
SKELOS, J.P., FISHER, BELEN and LOTT, JJ., concur.
