By Noddy A. Fernandez | Jan 31, 2019

CHICAGO — An ironworker is suing construction companies, citing alleged negligence and premises liability.

Anthony Dunovsky filed a complaint on Jan. 16 in Cook County Circuit Court against Cives Steel Co.; Midwest Steel Inc.; Metropolitan Construction Service LLC, and oithers, alleging the defendants breached their duty to provide a safe, suitable and proper job site, as well as properly designed and fabricated steel materials.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 27, 2017, Dunovsky, an ironworker, was required to assemble the improperly designed and fabricated beams of defendants using the porto-power device on the job site that created an unreasonably hazardous, unsafe and unsuitable work area. 

As a result, plaintiff claims he was physical injured, suffered great pain and incurred large medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to make a reasonable inspection of the premises and the work being done to prevent injury.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a dollar amount to satisfy the jurisdictional limitation of the court and other amounts. He is represented by Daniel O'Connor of O'Connor & Nakos in Chicago.

The Cook County Circuit Court Case No. is 19-L-000537.
