A woman has filed suit against Jackson Park Hospital for injuries allegedly suffered on premises.
June Lewis filed suit on Sept. 3 in Cook County Circuit Court, Law Division against Jackson Park Hospital.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 5, 2013, Lewis was lawfully on the premises of Jackson Park Hospital when she was allegedly injured by the closing of a heavy washroom door on her left index finger. The alleged incident was unexpected and not something that the plaintiff claims to have seen coming or something she would have thought to watch out for.
The plaintiff, as such, accuses the defendant of negligence; allowing a dangerous condition to exist on their property without warning to anyone that could potentially come across it; and failure to remedy or repair it for the future and allegedly allowing it to continue to exist, despite potential harm possible to others.
The plaintiff is suing for damages of a pecuniary and permanent nature, in the sum of more than $50,000, plus court costs and attorney fees.
The plaintiff is being represented by Joseph M. Scrementi of The Vrdolyak Law Group LLC of Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court, Law Division case number 2015L009094.
