A boy who was struck on his bicycle by a motorist claims he sustained head, neck, back and leg injuries.
Ty Lampley through his mother, Montrice Lampley filed a lawsuit Nov. 5 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Timothy Moore.
In his complaint, Ty Lampley alleges he was riding his bicycle across North Belt West at its intersection with North 45th Street in Belleville on June 23, 2013, when Moore, who was driving east, struck him.
Because of the collision, Lampley suffered disability and disfigurement, endured great physical pain and mental anguish and lost his normal life, according to the complaint. He also incurred medical costs and experienced a seriously diminished earning capacity, the suit states.
Ty Lampley blames Moore for causing the collision, saying he negligently failed to yield to a pedestrian, failed to properly apply his brakes, failed to sound his horn, failed to keep a vigilant lookout for pedestrians, failed to have his vehicle under proper control and failed to exercise due care.
In his complaint, Ty Lampley seeks a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs.
Attorney Matthew J. Marlen of Belleville will represent Lampley.
St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 14-L-727.
