CHICAGO — A deceased man's family is suing Shoreline Apartments Realty LLC after the man fell several stories to his death at the bottom of an elevator shaft.
Antoinette Williams, independent administrator of the estate of Bryant K. Williams, filed a complaint on Aug. 22 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant failed to keep its property reasonably safe.
