Now, Giangrand is suing California-based Public Storage due to injuries he suffered by a surprise raccoon attack that happened after he opened the door to his storage locker, according to a lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County Thursday.
Giangrand claims that Public Storage “failed to warn its customers that the storage units were not secure and that raccoons and other wildlife” had access to the units, according to the suit.READ MORE: Mother Who Heard Shots, Death Of Adam Toledo Shares What She Heard, Neighborhood Insight
