Stonewood Ale House patron blames restaurant's raised hearth for fall

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Sep 27, 2018

CHICAGO – A patron of a Schaumburg restaurant alleges a raised hearth in a path of travel caused him to fall.

James Flannigan filed a complaint on Sept. 4 in Cook County Circuit Court against Quad Six Inc., doing business as Stonewood Ale House, alleging, on Sept. 3, 2016, Flannigan entered the restaurant's bar area via a doorway when he struck the fireplace's raised hearth and fell. 

The plaintiff holds Quad Six Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide a reasonably safe means of ingress and egress between the bar area of the restaurant and the outdoor patio and failed to warn patrons there was a raised hearth in a likely path of travel.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages in an amount of more than $50,000. He is represented by Robert R. Duncan and James H. Podolny of Duncan Law Group LLP in Chicago.
