A Shiloh woman claims she sustained injuries to her neck, shoulder and low back after a driver rear-ended her.

Deidre Brede filed a lawsuit March 7 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Katherine Poore.

Brede claims she drove on South Lincoln Avenue at its intersection with Westminster in O'Fallon on Oct. 29, 2009, when Poore, who drove in the same direction, rear-ended her.

In addition to her injuries, Brede became sick, sore, lame, disordered and disabled and incurred medical costs because of the collision, according to the complaint. She also suffered disability and experienced pain and suffering, the suit states.

Brede blames Poore for causing the collision, saying she negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, rear-ended Brede, failed to keep her vehicle under proper control, failed to properly apply her brakes, drove too fast and followed Brede too closely.

In her complaint, Brede seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs.

Kirk A. Caponi of the Law Offices of Williams, Caponi, Foley and Eckert in Belleville will be representing her.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-123.
