Wrongful Death Lawsuit Regarding Fatal Fall At Chicago Concert

There has been a wrongful death lawsuit filed regarding the death of a man, Kyle Kirchhoff, who fatally fell while attending a concert at the Aragon Ballroom.

The accident was discussed in the Chicago Sun-Times article of May 24, 2015, titled “Man dies after falling from catwalk during concert at Aragon Ballroom,” which discusses the fatal accident the happened on May 22, 2015 when Kyle Kirchhoff and a group of friends at a concert walked through an unlocked door that they thought went to a balcony.  Instead, according to the lawsuit, the staircase led to a poorly lit catwalk.

The accident and lawsuit is discussed both in the March 25, 2016 Daily Herald article titled “Mother of Bartlett man who died at concert sues Aragon Ballroom” as well as the March 18 Cook County Record article titled “Deadly accident at concert at the Aragon Ballroom leads to lawsuit.”

As seen in an excerpt from the Daily Herald article:

Kirchhoff fell about four feet from an elevated portion of the catwalk to the floor where there were cords, wooden planks and protruding metal rods.

An autopsy conducted by the Cook County medical examiner determined Kirchhoff died of “blunt penetrating trauma of the chest” from falling onto the protruding metal rods.

The lawsuit argues The Aragon should have known the dimly lit catwalk and protruding metal rods presented danger and the door leading to the catwalk should have been locked.

Additional details regarding this premises liability lawsuit can be seen in a variety of media sources, including those mentioned above.

Fatal Workplace Accident In Bolingbrook

Illinois workplace accidents can happen for various reasons.  Common reasons for serious workplace injuries include lack of supervision; poor worker training; lack of communication; unsafe work conditions; defective equipment; and improper equipment.  However, there are many other reasons that can play a role in whether an employee is injured on the job.

Sadly, many of these workplace accidents seem avoidable.

As with any accident in which someone has been hurt or fatally injured, a qualified personal injury lawyer can determine if there was negligence involved and whether accident injury compensation may be attainable.  If such accident injury compensation is a possibility, how much such a case may be worth is another question that an experienced personal injury attorney can answer.

There was a fatal workplace accident Wednesday (March 16, 2016) in Bolingbrook.  The accident happened as a man, identified as Kevin A. Schneider, 57, of Green Bay, was “spotting” a trainee as the trainee was attempting to park a vehicle at the RR Donnelley warehouse on Windham Parkway.  According to Bolingbrook Police, Schneider died instantly after being pinned as he stepped between two semis.

Pedestrian Accident Involving Serious Head Injury

Head injuries have been discussed frequently on this site.  Head injuries are particularly problematic from an overall health perspective for many reasons.  Among the more worrisome aspect of head injuries is that the long-term health impact of various types of head injuries is, in many cases, unclear.

During accidents, there are many different types of head injuries that can occur.  Among common injuries are concussions.  However, other types of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur.

Any time a head injury occurs, it is recommended that one should have it immediately assessed by a qualified medical professional.  Head injuries can often be serious, and in many cases fatal.  More information with regard to head trauma can be seen on the Traumatic Brain Injuries page.

Recent vehicle and pedestrian accidents in Illinois, including those in the Chicago area, have involved various types of head injuries.

One pedestrian accident that involved a head impact happened on March 16, 2016.  The specific incident is discussed in the post titled “Arlington Heights Pedestrian Accident Injures Boy.”

In this pedestrian accident, a boy suffered a blow to the head when he was struck by a car and his head hit the vehicle.  The injuries included bleeding on the brain.

If you are involved in an accident in which your injuries include hitting your head, various types of head injuries can occur.  Concussions and their “danger signs” are further discussed on the “Concussions” page.
