A couple is suing a man in a dispute surrounding an auto accident.

Plaintiffs Gerald D. Main Sr. and Annabelle Gibson filed suit Sept. 10 in Madison County’s Third Judicial Circuit Court against defendant Kevin T. Worthy, alleging negligence related to the accident.

According to the complaint, at 1:08 p.m. on Sept. 16, 2013, the defendant is alleged to have turned south on Ninth Street in East Alton, where he struck Main’s car. The claim states that Worthy failed to reduce his vehicle’s speed and did not exercise proper caution in looking out for the plaintiffs. Main suffered injuries to his neck, chest, abdomen, lower back and both knees. Gibson, a passenger in Main’s car, suffered injuries to her chest, neck, back, thumb, hip and right knee.

The suit seeks reimbursement for current and future medical expenses related to the accident.

Attorney Bob L. Perica of the Perica Law Firm P.C. in Madison County is representing the plaintiffs, who are seeking damages of more than $50,000.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1169.
