Attorney Richard Warner has successfully advocated for a Multi-Billion Dollar Investment Firm related to its former ownership of a sky-scraper at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Upper Wacker Drive in Chicago, on the site of the Old Fort Dearborn, that had undergone a major re-model.
The construction negligence case was brought by the Building Manager and alleges that he sustained significant injuries while working in the building and falling through a failed/broken manhole cover in the sub-basement that was allegedly compromised during the re-model.
The negotiated outcome officially dismisses the sky-scraper’s former owner and related entities with zero liability and “the settlement represents just 0.5% of Plaintiff’s original demand,” Warner indicates. Judges Kathy M. Flanagan and John P. Callahan presided over the case – which has spanned almost 2.5 years, so far, and is still ongoing against numerous other Co-Defendants.
This victory comes on the heels of a triumphant DuPage County case where Attorney Warner successfully argued for entry of a Judge’s Deed transferring rightful ownership of a house and land back to our Client for her personal residence.
