By Molly English-Bowers | Jan 24, 2016


EDWARDSVILLE—A Madison County man and woman are suing over injuries they allegedly sustained as the result of an automobile accident.

Dennis P. Hasamear and Leslie Hudson filed the suit on Jan. 13 in Madison County Circuit Court against Katherine L. Smith of Collinsville.

The allegations of the lawsuit remain the same for both plaintiffs, however, plaintiff Hasamear was driving the vehicle and plaintiff Hudson was a passenger in the same vehicle. 

On March 8, 2015, Hasamear was driving a vehicle north on Morrison Street in Collinsville with Hudson as his passenter.

At the same time, the suit alleges, Smith was driving east along East Church Street near its intersection with Morrison Street. The suit claims she failed to yield the right of way to the plaintiffs' vehicle, failed to maintain proper control of her vehicle, failed to maintain a proper lookout and failed to obey a traffic control device.

Because of these alleged failures, the defendant's vehicle struck the vehicle the plaintiffs were in, causing injuries, pain and anguish. They have incurred and will incur medical bills, have suffered and will suffer a loss of income or the ability to generate income, and have suffered and will suffer a loss of a normal life. 

Each plaintiff seeks a judgment against the defendant of at least $50,000, court costs and other relief the law may require. They are represented by David W. Dugan of David W. Dugan PC of East Alton.
