Chicago attorneys Levin & Perconti file personal injury lawsuit against town

Steven Levin and Michael Bonamarte of Levin & Perconti have recently filed a lawsuit against the town of Cicero, Illinois on behalf of a woman severely injured in a bicycle accident caused by a depression in the sidewalk. The woman turned around to warn her two daughters, one who has special needs, about the depression in the poorly maintained sidewalk when the accident occurred. The woman fractured her left wrist, was unable to work and care for her daughters, incurred hospital, medical and related expenses, and has suffered pain, disability, disfigurement, and physical and emotional trauma. The town and park district failed to maintain the sidewalk or warn pedestrians and bicyclists about the depression.
