A Missouri woman is suing over claims she was injured in a collision on Illinois Route 3.
Katherine Fischer filed a lawsuit Aug. 1 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Steven R. Yates Jr., citing negligence.
According to the complaint, Fischer was a back-seat passenger in a car on Illinois Route 3 on June 30, 2013, when the vehicle was rear-ended by a vehicle operated by Yates. Fischer says she sustained injuries to her head, neck, back and arm, and her medical bills have gone unpaid by Yates. Yates is accused of negligence and damage to credit reputation.
Fischer is seeking more than $50,000 in damages. She is being represented in the case by attorney Ely Hadowsky of Brown & Brown LLP in St. Louis.
Madison County Circuit Court Case No. 14-L-1056.
