A suit was filed last week by the parents of a now-7-year-old boy in the Cook County Circuit Court stating that the kindergartner was forced to crawl across an icy playground area after falling and breaking his leg.
Damages at the amount of $200,000 are being sought by the lawsuit according to the report.
The incident took place in January of 2011 when Rahul Chandani slipped on a mound of snow at his Skokie elementary school. The fall resulted in a concussion and a broken leg. When the boy stated he was hurt, the teacher reportedly told him that she could not help him and that he need to get back on his own. The boy tried to walk but could not stand on the leg. He fell again and had to crawl back into the school building.
The boy’s mother, Priya Chandani, picked him up from school and noted a bump on his head. The boy was also complaining of dizziness. Chandani immediately took her son to the hospital. Rahul missed six weeks of school and needed six months of rehabilitation.

A man was jogging through the Rainbow Beach Park on the Southside of Chicago when two large dogs attacked him, requiring hospitalization for the man.
Joseph Finley was jogging along the lakeshore as he usually does after working all night as a sleep therapist. Two pit bulls, who weighed seventy pounds each, attacked the jogger and bit him all over his body. A neighbor heard the man’s cries for help and used a bat to try to stop the attack.
Police arrived on the scene and were forced to shoot the dogs when they turned from Finley and rushed the officers.
It was later discovered that the dogs had been let out of their fenced yard by an unknown person. Finley was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition and his status has upgraded to stable.

Starbucks has been ordered to pay a slip and fall victim $7.5 million.
The accident occurred in 2008 after a store manager at a Vista Starbucks in San Diego had cleaned the floors. The victim had just ordered and was walking towards the pick-up counter when he lost his balance on the wet floor and fell. He sustained injuries to his head that prevented him from returning to his career as a chiropractor.
He sued the national chain for loss of income as well as other damages. After two and a half weeks at trial, the jury in the case returned with a $7.5 million verdict against Starbucks.
