CHICAGO — A woman is suing the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority and Standard Parking Corporation for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent her from tripping over the leg of a barricade at a baseball stadium.
Rosemarie Thompson filed a lawsuit on March 28 in the Cook County Circuit Court alleging that the defendants allowed barricades to be extended into a pedestrian walkway at U.S. Cellular Field, the home stadium of the Chicago White Sox, now known as Guaranteed Rate Field.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sustained physical injuries on July 18, 2015, when she tripped over a leg of a barricade that was in the walkway. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to warn her of the hazardous condition of the walkway due to the extended leg of the barricade.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of the court, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Marta A. Zaborska and Jeffrey S. Jordan of O'Connor & Nakos Ltd in Chicago.
