CHICAGO - The Illinois Supreme Court unanimously ruled Dec. 13 that an Illinois worker with alleged manganese poisoning can pursue a legal malpractice case against attorneys he retained in 1999 to represent him in a workers' compensation action because they failed to advise him of his potential claims against his employer and the manufacturers of the products that contained the manganese (Jesse E. Hernandez, et al. v. Jeffrey Pritikin, et al., No. 113054, Ill. Sup.).
