  • Eric Kaplan successfully defended an Illinois agency in a wrongful death case filed by the family of a ten year old boy killed while tubing with his family on Petite Lake when he was struck by a boat operated by a driver who was intoxicated. Plaintiffs claimed that the Illinois agency failed to implement speeding restrictions, boat length restrictions and to designate safe tubing areas on the Chain O’Lakes and that this proximately caused the child’s death. KP&G successfully argued and obtained a dismissal of the case against the Illinois agency.
