An Illinois motorist is suing another driver, alleging negligence after he says the side of his vehicle was struck in a collision.
Harry Jacobs filed a lawsuit on Sept. 24 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Alvin Dressler and Dressler Truck Service, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on May 15, Jacobs was driving a motor vehicle south on Interstate Highway 55 in East St. Louis. The suit says the side of his vehicle was struck by Alvin Dressler, a Dressler Truck Service driver using a vehicle owned by the business.
As a result, the lawsuit states, the plaintiff claims he received injuries to his neck, shoulders and back, has been disabled and has spent money for medical care in the past, present and will in the future. He also has experienced lost wages and will do so in the future, the suit says.
Jacobs seeks $50,000 from the defendants, court costs and attorney fees. He is represented by attorneys Thomas C. Rich, Kristina D. Cooksey and Michelle M. Rich of Fairview Heights.
