EDWARDSVILLE – A man claims he was injured when another driver struck his vehicle in an accident in Fairview Heights.
Danny Blazier filed a complaint on June 9 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Marsha A. Diecker alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 16, 2015, while he was driving his 2007 Jeep Commander and was traveling near the intersection of Market Place and Plaza Drive in Fairview Heights, the defendant's vehicle, a 2012 Buick Enclave, struck the driver's side rear of his vehicle. He alleges the incident caused him to sustain injuries to his neck, back, legs and other portions of his body. He claims he has suffered and will continue to suffer great pain and mental anguish and medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Diecker responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep proper lookout, failed to yield right of way, failed to reduce speed and failed to give audible warning.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages, costs of suit, attorney's fees and for such other relief as it deems just and equitable. He is represented by Thomas R. Ysursa of Becker, Hoerner, Thompson & Ysursa PC in Belleville.
