EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County woman is suing a Wood River father and son after the son allegedly ran into her, resulting in a broken hip.
Brittany Gresham filed a complaint Feb. 23 in Madison County Circuit Court against
John L. Boswell and Thomas Boswell,
alleging they breached their duty of reasonable care for the safety of others.
According to the complaint, in August 2015, Gresham was at 712 N. Wood River Ave. in Wood River with Thomas Boswell, son of John Boswell. The suit says Thomas Boswell ran into her and knocked her to the floor, causing her to suffer a broken hip.
The plaintiff alleges Thomas Boswell carelessly ran into her, and John Boswell negligently allowed his son to harm her.
Gresham seeks trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000 for each defendant, plus costs of suit.
She is represented by attorney Thomas G. Maag of Maag Law Firm LLC in Wood River.
