Construction Coverage Law Update

Instructor: R. Michael McCann

Illinois law can turn a standard construction litigation case into a nightmare for a construction company facing an injured employee and a poorly drafted contract. Standard construction contracts in Illinois often contain provisions requiring a subcontractor to name a general contractor as an additional insured and otherwise promise to defend and indemnify the general contractor. Additionally, Illinois form construction contracts frequently contain a Kotecki waiver provision, which prevents the employer of an injured worker from limiting liability to its workers’ compensation liability. This one-hour program discusses the Illinois Contribution Act and Illinois law on joint and several liability, and provides valuable advice on how a contractor can protect itself.
