Jerry Popovich to Speak at DRI Retail and Hospitality Litigation Conference

Orange County Partner Jerry Popovich will speak at the 2017 DRI Retail and Hospitality Litigation Seminar on May 4 and 5 in Chicago. Jerry, and co-presenter Eric Rupe of Lerch Bates in Chicago, will address the topic, "Escalator Claims:  Best Practices for Prevention and Defense."

The session will focus on injuries (sometimes catastrophic) associated with the operation of escalators and elevators, including preventative measures and methods to manage risk before an injury ever occurs. The presenters will discuss important issues regarding service companies, including the terms of the service agreement, and how to ensure that the service work is at a level to match the retailer's responsibility to the public. The session will conclude with a discussion of the critical first steps in protecting and defending the premises operator if an injury does occur.
