Defense attorneys and their clients received a boost in construction accident cases involving personal injury thanks to a recent Illinois Supreme Court ruling. The decision restricts construction negligence and premises liability theories of recovery in Illinois. Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Katie E. Gorrie, provides an overview of the decision and its potential impact.
Ms. Gorrie defends real estate developers, construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors in construction litigation involving personal injury, property damage and construction defects. She writes regularly about developments that affect her clients. She recently was featured in a Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article about women litigators who have first chair trial experience.
