A man examining a wine glass at the Bolingbrook Ikea suffered a cut to his left index finger when it "suddenly" broke in his hand, according to a lawsuit filed in Will County court.

Glendale Heights resident Kiran B. Chaudhari is suing the Ikea company over the allegedly dangerous wine glass. Chaudhari claims to have suffered "severe and permanent injuries both externally and internally," the lawsuit said.

Chaudhari was shopping in the Ikea in March 2012 when he was struck by the alleged calamity of the shattering wine glass. He was "holding and inspecting one of (Ikea's) wine glass products" when it "suddenly failed and broke in (his) hand," the suit said.

Chaudhari "suffered great pains and anguish, both in mind and in body, and will continue to suffer," the lawsuit said.

After Chaudhari "severely lacerated (his) left index finger," the suit said, two Ikea employees "were aware of the serious and profusely bleeding injury ... (and) stated that medical care would be immediately and promptly provided," but that didn't happen for more than 20 minutes.

This delay caused Chaudhari to lose a "significant amount of blood," the lawsuit said.

I agree w/you 100%, Leadbottom. The guy is probably wanting his material dreams fulfilled by having Ikea pay for them instead of his working and paying for them on his own. I hope Ikea sues this guy for false accusations. It's guys like this character that ruin it for the rest of us honest consumers when prices go up due to thievery and false lawsuits like this one.

personally, I feel the so called attorney that is presenting this case it the one that is wrong-- just a shame there isn't a law that holds the losing attorney of these stupid cases liable for the court and opposing legal fees -- problem now is that the attorney has nothing but a little time to lose-- and everything to gain -- bad system

In most European countries if a person files a lawsuit and loses he/she is responsible for paying the fees of the person/ entity that they dragged into court. That's what we need here! Suing because he cut his pinkie -what a pussy to boot!
