CHICAGO — A construction worker is suing a property owner, saying the owner didn't do enough to either remove or warn about ice on the ground, leading the worker to allegedly suffer injuries when he allegedly slipped and fell on the ice.
Alexis Rendon filed a complaint on Feb. 16 in Cook County Circuit Court against Optima Chicago Center LLC and Optima Inc. alleging they failed to inspect their property to check for dangerous conditions that may cause an accident.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he sustained physical injuries on Feb. 4, 2016, when he fell on ice that had purportedly accumulated on the property. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to warn the plaintiff about the ice that had accumulated or remove it altogether.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000, plus court costs. He is represented by the Law Offices of Thomas A. Morrissey in La Grange.
