In an action to recover damages for personal injuries, the defendants appeal from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Lewis, J.), dated June 4, 2015, which denied their motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
Ordered that the order is modified, on the law, by deleting the provision thereof denying that branch of the defendants' motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the cause of action alleging a violation of Labor Law § 241 (6), and substituting therefor a provision granting that branch of the motion; as so modified, the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, without costs or disbursements.
In seeking summary judgment dismissing the complaint, the defendants had the initial burden of establishing that they did not create the alleged dangerous condition and did not have actual or constructive notice of it (see Alexis v Motel Oasis, 143 A.D.3d 926 ; Monastiriotis v Monastiriotis, 141 A.D.3d 510 ; King v Sam's E., Inc., 81 A.D.3d 1414 ).
Contrary to the defendants' contention, they failed to meet their initial burden of establishing that they lacked constructive notice of the condition in question. A defendant has constructive notice of a hazardous condition when the condition is visible and apparent, and has existed for a sufficient length of time to afford the defendant a reasonable opportunity to discover and remedy it (see Gordon v American Museum of Natural History, 67 N.Y.2d 836, 837-838 ). In support of their motion, the defendants submitted, inter alia, the deposition testimony of the plaintiff, in which he stated that for up to 10 days prior to the accident, he observed that the place where the concrete eventually collapsed had "lines ... indicating the breaking points." Thus, by their own submissions, the defendants raised an issue of fact as to whether the allegedly dangerous condition was visible and apparent and existed for a sufficient length of time prior to the plaintiff's fall to permit them to discover and remedy it (see Robinson v Viani, 140 A.D.3d 844 ; Gyokchyan v City of New York, 106 A.D.3d 780 ; King v Sam's E., Inc., 81 A.D.3d 1414 ; Merrill v Falleti Motors, Inc., 8 A.D.3d 1055 ). Accordingly, the branch of the defendants' motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the cause of action alleging common-law negligence was properly denied regardless of the sufficiency of the plaintiff's opposition papers (see Winegrad v New York Univ. Med. Ctr., 64 N.Y.2d 851 ).
However, the Supreme Court should have granted that branch of the defendants' motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as predicated upon a violation of Labor Law § 241 (6). In order to establish a Labor Law § 241 (6) claim, a plaintiff must allege a violation of a specific and applicable provision of the Industrial Code (see Ross v Curtis-Palmer Hydro-Elec. Co., 81 N.Y.2d 494, 505
The defendants' remaining contention is improperly raised for the first time on appeal.
