Landmark Case Increases Liability for Illinois Business Owners

Pamela Fritz was trying to pull her car out of a Burger King parking lot on Sept. 27, 2001, when her accelerator stuck, catapulting her car off the curb and through the restaurant's wall. Her car landed on and killed Detroy Marshall III, who had been enjoying a cup of coffee inside.

This accident eventually landed Burger King in Illinois' High Court defending allegations it was responsible for Marshall's death.
