EDWARDSVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver, claiming negligence and alleging that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Brian Brownrigg filed a complaint on June 6 in Madison County Circuit Court against Alec Mahoney, alleging that the defendant failed to properly control his vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 4, 2014, he sustained several physical injuries throughout his body when his car was struck from behind while he was traveling northbound on State Route 159. The plaintiff holds Mahoney responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to reduce the speed of his car or keep a proper lookout, which resulted in his car hitting the rear of the plaintiff's vehicle.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $50,000. He is represented by Matthew P. Young of Kuehn, Beasley, & Young, P.C. in Belleville.
