Mercy Hospital named in lawsuit following woman’s trip and fall

A woman is suing Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, citing alleged negligence, after she allegedly was injured when she tripped and fell.

Rosie Campbell filed a complaint on Jan. 16 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant breached its duty to maintain premises in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, in August 2018, Rosie Campbell tripped and fell in the front entrance, sustaining injuries.

The plaintiff alleges the defendant permitted and allowed a tripping mechanism to exist on or near an area intended as an entryway; failed to repair, maintain and inspect all areas intended as entryways; and failed to maintain a safe means of entrance and exit.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000, plus costs of bringing the lawsuit.
