Illinois Appeals Court: Injured Subcontractor Owed A Duty Of Care
(August 23, 2016, 9:36 AM EDT) -- CHICAGO — An Illinois appeals court on Aug. 16 reversed a ruling holding that a general contractor was not subject to liability when it knew of a dangerous condition — a snowy, slippery roof — and sent a subcontractor who was injured when he slipped and fell to encounter it (Marvin Larson, et al. v. Daniel Ephraim, et al., No. 15-1223, Ill. App., 1st Dist., 2nd Div.; 2016 Ill. App. Unpub. LEXIS 1711).
