BELLEVILLE – A driver is seeking more than $50,000 in damages after an accident in East St. Louis.
Allison Homfeld filed a complaint on Oct. 28 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Sander Pierre Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 1, 2014, she was operating a motor vehicle traveling southbound on Illinois Route 13 near its intersection with Eighth Street in East St. Louis when the defendant caused his vehicle to collide with plaintiff's vehicle. She alleges the incident caused her to sustain severe and permanent injuries and damages. The plaintiff holds Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to stop or swerve to avoid collision, failed to maintain proper control of his vehicle and failed to see what should have seen.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs for this action. She is represented by Kenneth B. Beljanksi of Brown & Brown LLP in Fairview Heights.
