CHICAGO — A man is suing the Chicago Transit Authority for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.

Eduardo Dejesus filed a complaint on April 12 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging he fell on the train tracks at the CTA's Red Line Wilson stop on May 31 while attempting to get off a train, suffering severe and permanent bodily injuries, which allegedly have caused him to suffer emotional distress, severe pain and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to provide him with a safe means of exiting the train and for allegedly failing to put in place a warning system to alert its passengers that there was no platform outside the train's doors.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, plus court costs. He is represented by Gregory J. Olmstead of the Deratany Firm in Chicago.
