A St. Louis County woman's auto accident suit against Federal Express, Roger Lewis and R & M Delivery is set for trial Monday, Dec. 5.
Tracy Haefner sued the trio on June 23, 2003, alleging she was struck head-on while she was making a left-hand turn into the eastbound lane of Ladue Road from Cross Trails Drive in St. Louis County. Lewis was driving a FedEx truck, which was leased to R&M Delivery.
Haefner claims that Lewis was negligent and was driving too fast for conditions.
She also claims Lewis failed to operate his vehicle appropriately, failed to apply his brakes in time, failed to keep a proper lookout and drove his vehicle in a reckless and careless manner.
According to Haefner, she sustained massive and disabling injuries including a fractured skull, brain swelling, respiratory failure, pulmonary contusion, pelvic fracture, tibia fracture, broken neck and neurological impairment.
The suit claims Haefner has incurred medical bills, lost time from work and has and will continue to endure pain and suffering as a result of her condition.
Haefner is represented by Robert O’Neil of Blitz, Bardgett & Deutsch of St. Louis.
Circuit Judge George Moran will preside over the case.
