EDWARDSVILLE — A woman is suing Granite City motorist Jimmy Hall, alleging negligence in connection with a traffic collision.
Levora Taylor filed a complaint on Oct. 11 in Madison County Circuit Court against Hall, alleging that he failed to operate his vehicle with a reasonable degree of care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 19, 2015, she was operating a motor vehicle and was stopped for a red light when the defendant drove his vehicle into the rear of hers, causing her injuries that resulted in pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Hall responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to stop, swerve or reduce speed to avoid the collision, failed to yield right of way and failed to maintain a careful lookout.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of this suit, and for any further relief that is just under the circumstances. She is represented by Joshua P. Myers and Aaron M. Vogel of Schultz & Myers LLC in St. Louis.
