EDWARDSVILLE – A Madison woman has filed suit against two drivers after she alleges she was injured in an auto accident.
Constance Starnes filed a complaint on July 18 in the Madison County Circuit Court against the Malissa Phillips and Tammie Starnes alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 8, 2015, she was a passenger in the vehicle being driven by defendant Starnes when defendants got involved in a motor vehicle collision, causing her to sustain injuries that resulted in physical pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability and medical expenses. The suit states the incident took place on Sixth Street and Alton Avenue. The plaintiff holds Phillips and Starnes responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to yield right of way, failed to reduce speed, failed to keep proper lookout and failed to exercise reasonable care.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in an amount greater than $50,000 and for such further relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Matthew P. Young of Kuehn, Beasley & Young PC in Belleville.
