Municipal Liability

Practice-Municipal Municipal Liability is another rapidly changing area of civil litigation in Illinois. Of late, Illinois Appellate Courts have issued decisions almost daily redefining and modifying standards of municipal liability. Often, the municipalities are the “deep pockets” sought after as a last option in catastrophic injury cases. The attorneys of our firm have defended municipalities on a wide range of issues, including civil rights claims, prisoner abuse claims and “willful and wanton conduct” claims.
