A man is suing over claims he was injured on an escalator at O'Hare International Airport.

Michael Schofield filed a premises liability lawsuit Aug. 13 in the Cook County Circuit Court against the City of Chicago.

According to the complaint, Schofield was riding an escalator after getting off a plane in the C-Concourse of O'Hare on June 19, when the escalator lurched, causing him to fall to the ground and sustain injuries.

He accuses the city of Chicago of failing to maintain the escalator or take it out of service when it was unsafe for public use.

Schofield is seeking more than $50,000 in damages and is being represented in the case by Law Offices of Barry G. Doyle P.C. in Skokie.

Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 2014L008483.
