CHICAGO — A surviving relative is suing the Chicago Transit Authority, alleging employees did not do enough to prevent an intoxicated passenger's injuries.
Floyd Daniel, independent administrator of the estate of Corey Daniel, filed a complaint on Aug. 28 in Cook County Circuit Court alleging the CTA and a bus driver should bear responsibility for Corey Daniel's death on March 3.
According to the complaint, Daniel allegedly was visibly intoxicated, when he boarded a CTA bus in the early morning hours of March 2, yet the bus driver allegedly did not check the bus for passengers before parking the bus at a CTA terminal at the end of his shift, allegedly leaving Corey Daniel on the bus.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment greater than $50,000, plus costs of the lawsuit. He is represented by Robert J. Booth of The Rooth Law Firm in Evanston.
