CHICAGO — A man is suing Chicago International Charter School Bucktown LLC, Chicago Charter School Foundation and Chicago Charter School Management LLC, alleging the school should be held responsible for a radiator that fell on him while he was repairing it.
Kurt F. Merkendorfer filed a complaint on Oct. 12 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to properly maintain their premises.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 1, 2015, he was on the school premises to work on a radiator when it fell on him and caused injuries. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to inspect the supports for the radiator and to make sure it was free from any defects that could cause an accident.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants sufficient to satisfy the jurisdictional limits of the court plus court costs. He is represented by Lisa M. Longo of Morici, Figlioli & Associates in Chicago.
