Abigail C. Waeyaert to speak on jury instructions in construction cases in legal seminar.



On April 23, 2015, Abigail C. Waeyaert will be a presenter at a half-day continuing legal education (CLE) seminar for attorneys hosted by the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel, a/k/a Illinois Defense Counsel or IDC, at the Outing Club in Davenport, Iowa.  Ms. Waeyaert will be speaking on Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions in Construction Cases and the recent Illinois court decision of Ramirez v FCL Builders, which upheld a $1.588 million verdict for an injured worker against a general contractor because the court found use of an improper jury instruction and verdict form did not seriously prejudice the defendant.
