CHICAGO — A father and estate administrator is suing the Chicago Transit Authority, citing alleged negligence and wrongful death.
Gabriel G. Ciupeiu, individually and as special administrator of the estate of the late Gabriel M. Ciupeiu, filed a complaint June 25 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging Gabriel M. Ciupeiu was on the CTA's 35th Street Platform on June 24, 2017, when he was allegedly struck by a train, resulting in his death.
The plaintiff said the authority is responsible for the death because it allegedly operated its trains in an unsafe manner, its employees failed to keep a proper lookout, and it failed to warn its customers of the risk of using bicycles on the platform.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount greater than $50,000. He is represented by John Maclnerney of Hofeld and Shaffner in Chicago.
