A man is suing over claims he was injured while on the job at the International Chicago hotel.

Ronald Hall, as an employee of Ward Contracting, filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court against the Intercontinental Chicago Hotel, a division of IHG Management (Maryland) LLC, citing negligence.

According to the claim, Hall was lawfully working at the International Chicago Hotel, located at 505 N. Michigan Ave., performing construction work for Ward Contracting near a service elevator on Nov. 12, 2009, when he suffered injuries after stepping on a knife left near service trays and silverware outside the service elevator he had just exited, causing him to incur severe and permanent injuries and requiring him to expend money for medical care and expenses.

Hall is seeking damages of more than $50,000, plus costs and attorney fees, for the Intercontinental Chicago Hotel’s negligence to not tend to the dangerous condition on the premises near the service elevator where Hall suffered injury after exiting, the claim states.

He is being represented by Keith L. Young, located in Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L008760.
