(735 ILCS 5/2-1108)
(from Ch. 110, par. 2-1108)
Verdict - Special interrogatories.
Unless the nature of the case requires otherwise, the jury shall
render a general verdict. The jury may be required by the court, and
must be required on request of any party, to find specially upon any
material question or questions of fact submitted to the jury in writing.
Special interrogatories shall be tendered, objected to, ruled upon and
submitted to the jury as in the case of instructions. Submitting or
refusing to submit a question of fact to the jury may be reviewed on
appeal, as a ruling on a question of law. When the special finding of
fact is inconsistent with the general verdict, the former controls the
latter and the court may enter judgment accordingly.
