 Clifford Law Offices filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of a couple that was injured by flying debris and a tidal wave of water when a huge water tank fell off of a building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.

A man and his girlfriend were in an alley moving the woman out of the building next door on Wednesday when the wooden water tank fell approximately nine stories from the top of the Brewster building in the 2800 block of Pine Grove Avenue.

Lauren Hussar, 27, and Jack Baginski, 29, were standing near his Acura when the water tank crashed down to the ground next to them.  They were rushed to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where Lauren still remains.

 “We are immediately seeking all maintenance and inspection records for this building and its water tank,” said Richard F. Burke, Jr., partner at Clifford Law Offices handling the matter.  “Such an old and potentially dangerous structure must be carefully inspected and meticulously maintained to ensure it is securely mounted to the roof of the building. People living in densely populated neighborhoods need to know these aging water tanks are safe.”

The lawsuit was filed in the Law Division and seeks an unspecified amount of damages on behalf of each of them.
