CHICAGO — A deceased man's family is suing T.Y. Lin International Great Lakes Inc. and T.Y. Lin International for alleged negligence and for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.
Edyta Tucharski, independent administrator of the estate of Konrad Tucharski, filed a complaint on Aug. 8 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging Tucharski sustained a serious skull injury when his head collided with a concrete sewer pipe due to the force of a sewer trench caving in on top of him after the defendants failed to warn their workers about not working outside of the protection of the trench shield, a device that protects workers from debris in case a trench caves in.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Joseph A. Power, Jr. and James I. Power of Power Rogers & Smith LLP in Chicago.
