Falling beam injures man, lawsuit filed in Cook County

Taking the trains in Chicago shouldn't come with a risk of getting seriously hurt. People who use the Chicago Transit Authority trains and those who walk near the lines have a right to expect that the platforms, tracks, trains and other items near them will be properly maintained. There are instances in which that expectation isn't met. When the expectation isn't met, commuters and pedestrians can be injured. This fact is the subject of a lawsuit filed against the CTA on Aug. 11.

Cook County man paralyzed by falling branch, settlement possible

When some people see something that could cause injury on property owned by a government entity, they will sometimes contact the appropriate authorities to make a complaint or notify them of the problem. That is what happened when people noticed dead branches on a tree in the 500 block of West Grant Place in Lincoln Park. The City of Chicago, however, neglected to clear dead branches from the tree.
