CHICAGO — A man is suing 7-Eleven Inc. and franchisee Gurinderspal Singh, claiming a relative slipped and fell on ice, causing injuries which led to his death.
Jeffrey Peterson filed a complaint on June 5, in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging on Jan. 24, 2018, Robert Peterson slipped and fell on ice outside a 7-Eleven store in Elk Grove Village. The complaint said he siffered injuries, leading to his death that same day. The complaint does not specify how or where Robert Peterson died.
The plaintiff holds 7-Eleven and Singh responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to maintain the walkway of the store, and failed to warn the decedent of the condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for damages greater than $50,000. He is represented by Gregory J. Lamorena of Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg LLC in Chicago.
