BELLEVILLE – A motorist is suing another driver, alleging negligence over injuries he says he suffered in a Caseyville automobile accident.
Alvin Seger filed the lawsuit Feb. 2 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Evan P. Moore.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 21, 2014, Seger was driving his vehicle northbound on Lemen Road at its intersection with Lemen Settlement Road in Caseyville when Moore ran a stop sign and hit the plaintiff's vehicle, causing injuries to the plaintiff.
The suit says Moore was negligent in failing to keep a proper lookout, failing to apply the brakes of his vehicle, operating the vehicle at an excessive rate of speed, failing to yield the right of way, failing to stop at the stop sign and operating his vehicle with inadequate brakes.
The plaintiff alleges he suffered injuries to his head, back, neck, shoulder and limbs, both internally and externally. Seger says he has paid for medical care and expects to do so into the future, he has suffered disability and he has experienced pain and suffering, which he expects will continue in the future.
Seger seeks at least $50,000, plus court costs. He is represented by attorney John H. Hustava in Collinsville.
