Our general civil liability defense engagements include products liability defense for a major garage door opener manufacturer. We successfully obtained summary judgment in Cook County, Illinois on a claim against the manufacturer for injuries arising from a homeowner’s attempted repair of the opener’s motor.
Our team are experienced civil litigators. Two of our partners have a combined total of more than 110 jury verdicts in the past several years. We have tried wrongful death, serious personal injury, and commercial dispute matters in state and federal courts. We are also engaged in civil subrogation and lien recovery for both general liability matters and workers’ compensation-related actions. One of our successes includes obtaining more than $1.4 million in third-party recoveries for one client.
