Mae Hodge filed a personal injury lawsuit against the University of Chicago and Court Theatre in the Cook County Circuit Court on Oct. 9.
According to Hodge, she was entering the lobby of the Court Theatre at 5535 S. Ellis in Chicago when her shoe became caught in the floor mat, causing her to fall. Hodge claims she was unable to walk immediately following the accident and was taken via ambulance to the emergency room at the University of Chicago.
Hodge alleges she has sustained severe and permanent physical and emotional injuries which have required her to expend large sums of money for medical care. Hodge now seeks compensatory damages from the named defendants.
Hodge is seeking more than $350,000 in damages. She is being represented by Chicago attorney LaVon M. Johns.
