A Madison County resident is suing a motorist on allegations of negligent driving following a 2013 vehicle collision.
Phyllis Campbell filed against Larry E. Douglas on Aug. 24 in Madison County Circuit Court, alleging several traffic violations in the November 2013 collision.
According to the complaint, the defendant was traveling westbound on Rock Road near the intersection of Route 3 in Granite City on or about Nov. 1, 2013. The suit states that Douglas failed to stop or swerve his vehicle at the appearance of danger, drove without keeping his automobile under sufficient control to avoid collision, operated the vehicle at too great a speed for the circumstances, and failed to keep an adequate lookout for traffic ahead of and to the side of his car, crashing into Campbell’s vehicle and causing injuries.
The suit states that Campbell sustained internal and external injuries, pain, suffering, anguish, limitation of daily activities, disability, loss of normal life and medical bills as a direct and proximate result of the defendant’s actions.
The plaintiff seeks judgment in her favor for more than $50,000 plus attorneys’ fees and costs. She is represented by Kenneth Beljanski and Trent West of Brown & Brown in Fairview Heights.
