A woman is seeking compensation following an East St. Louis automobile incident in which she was allegedly physically injured.
Jessica Rainey filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Jennifer Rainey and Richard K. Moore, alleging negligence in an automobile accident.
According to the complaint, Jessica Rainey claims she was riding in a vehicle owned and operated by Jennifer Rainey on July 29 when the incident occurred. Jennifer Rainey allegedly collided with a trailer that was being driven by Moore after allegedly failing to properly check to see if the road was clear.
The plaintiff alleged in the suit that the defendants failed to perform basic safety procedures when operating the vehicles. As a direct result of the crash, Jessica Rainey claims she suffered physical injuries, which have affected her neck and head.
She is seeking compensation of more than $50,000 for all damages suffered and legal fees incurred. She is represented by David H. Bone in Belleville.
