In Chicago, Illinois personal injury attorneys from Abels & Assoc. reached a premises liability settlement for $20,000 with Jewel-Osco. The case involved a Chicago resident who cut his hand on glass that was protruding from the handle of a grocery cart. The glass was dirty and appeared to have been there for a long time. The store is liable for the injuries because they had constructive notice of the danger, meaning with reasonable inspection they should have discovered and removed the glass from the cart before the plaintiff was inured.
The plaintiff bandaged his hand, but several days later the wound became infected, and he had to seek medical treatment at a Chicago area hospital.
