EDWARDSVILLE — A pedestrian is suing a motorist for allegedly hitting her while she was walking in a parking lot.
Heather M. Carroll filed a complaint on July 17 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Thomas S. Hunter, alleging he failed to exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 28, 2016, she was walking in a parking lot at George Street when she was struck by Hunter's vehicle.
As a result, Carroll claims she suffered physical injuries, impairment and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Hunter failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to yield to plaintiff's movement, failed to sound his horn to warn of his movements and operated his vehicle at an unreasonable speed.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit, and any other further relief to which the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by James M. Ruppert of Hassakis & Hassakis, PC in Mount Vernon.
