Two Cook County residents are suing over claims a piece of concrete fell and hit him in the head.

Frank Santoria and Rosarura Sanchez Garcia filed a lawsuit May 6 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Mirko Vincic, citing negligence and loss of companionship.

According to the complaint, Santoria suffered injuries on July 14, when a piece of concrete fell from the ceiling and hit him in the head while in a commercial property at 2101 N. Cicero Ave. in Chicago.

The plaintiffs claim the defendant failed to warn Santoria of the condition of the property and failed to properly maintain and repair the ceilings and roof.

They are seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and court costs. They are being represented by Chicago attorney Michael E. Holden of Romanucci & Blandin LLC.
