An Illinois woman is suing over injuries she allegedly suffered as the result of a Belleville automobile accident.
Sandra L. Foor filed the suit on Nov. 20 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Louise A. Hughes.
According to the complaint, on April 7, 2014, the plaintiff was driving her car on Lebanon Avenue near its intersection with Illinois Route 159 in Belleville. At the same time, the defendant was driving in the same northerly direction.
Foor alleges the defendant failed to control the vehicle, was driving at an excessive rate of speed and failed to stop, causing her to rear-end the plaintiff's vehicle. As a result, the plaintiff alleges injuries.
Those injuries include her left wrists, right arm, shoulder, neck, back and other body parts. She has spent money seeking medical attention and has missed numerous work days; she expects both situations to continue into the future, the suit states.
The plaintiff seeks at least $50,000 plus court costs and attorney fees. She is represented by Gary Mack of the Law Offices of Gary Mack of Belleville.
