EDWARDSVILLE — A couple's lawsuit, filed on behalf of their son and themselves, alleges a motorist was negligent in connection with an automobile collision.
Katherine Holliday and Steven Holliday, individually and as parents and next kin of Steven Holliday Jr., a minor, filed a complaint on Oct. 27 in Madison County Circuit Court against Jamie Huber, alleging that the motorist failed to exercise ordinary care in the operation and control of her vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that, on July 25, Steven Holliday and Steven Holliday, Jr. were passengers in a vehicle being driven by Katherine Holliday when the defendant negligently rear-ended their vehicle while it was stopped.
The collision caused them to sustain bodily injuries and property damage, the suit alleges.
The plaintiffs hold Huber responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain proper control of her vehicle, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to reduce speed or stop her vehicle to avoid a collision.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensation in excess of $50,000 for each plaintiff, plus costs of this suit. They are represented by Michael P. Glisson of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
