Anthony Muniz filed suit in the Cook County Circuit Court on Oct. 18 against Home Depot U.S.A. Inc. over injuries he allegedly sustained while working on a construction site.
According to Muniz, in March of 2012, he was working for Beam Team Inc. at a construction site owned or controlled by Home Depot at 6211 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago.
Muniz claims he was using a stairway at the construction site that was erected by or for Home Depot when a stair collapsed. He alleges that Home Depot failed to properly erect or inspect the stairs, creating an unreasonably dangerous working condition that resulted in his injuries. .
