A Cook County woman is suing the City of Elmhurst and its historical museum, claiming their negligence led her to fall and injury herself.

Krystyna Gut filed a lawsuit May 5 in the Cook County Circuit Court against the City of Elmhurst and Elmhurst Heritage Foundation, doing business as Elmhurst Historical Museum.

Gut claims she was injured on May 6, 2013, when she was walking downstairs at the defendant's property at 120 E. Park Ave. in Elmhurst. The suit alleges there was floor stripping liquid on the ground that caused her to slip and fall.

Gut is seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Chicago attorney David Nemeroff of Nemeroff Law Offices Ltd.
