Toronto retiree suing elevator company for negligence

A Toronto retiree is suing one of the world's largest elevator companies for negligence.

Kenneth Smookler says he hurt his leg when he fell from a broken elevator in his downtown Toronto condo.

Smookler is seeking 25-thousand dollars in compensation from Schindler Elevator and his condo corporation for what he alleges was their failure to properly maintain the device.

His claims haven't been proven in court.
