An Illinois woman is suing a motorist, alleging negligence for injuries she says she sustained when the defendant's vehicle collided with hers.
Pamela Loftin filed a lawsuit on Nov. 9 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Delores Doussard, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 22, 2014, Loftin was driving on an Interstate Highway 64 eastbound exit ramp near North Green Mountain Road in O'Fallon when Doussard, driving behind the plaintiff, allegedly collided with the back of her vehicle.
The suit says the defendant's negligence caused the plaintiff serious injuries for which she sought medical treatment and for which she will require care in the future. The plaintiff also has incurred a permanent disability and loss of normal life, the suit states.
Loftin seeks at least $50,000 in damages. She is represented by attorney Steven E. Katzman of Katzman & Sugden in Belleville.
St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 15-L-640.
