A woman is suing over claims she fell while walking through an intersection on the city's Near North Side.

Aimee Strauss filed suit Jan. 21 in Cook County Circuit Court against the City of Chicago.

According to the complaint, Strauss was inside the crosswalk at the intersection of North Wabash Avenue and Huron Street on May 22, 2014, when she tripped and fell on an uneven section of the crosswalk area.

Strauss contends the city negligently failed to repair the uneven, cracked and broken portion of intersection and allowed it to remain in a dangerous condition, causing her to fall. The city, she claims, also failed to warn pedestrians of the existence of the dangerous condition.

Strauss is represented by attorney Daniel A. Klein of Kurash & Klein in Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number: 2015L000589.
