BELLEVILLE – A St. Clair County resident has filed a suit against over an accident last year in Belleville.
Annie Armstrong filed a complaint on May 31 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Sharon McDevitt alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 24, 2017, she was traveling north on state Route 159 near its interchange ramp with state Route 15 in Belleville when the defendant carelessly attempted to make a left turn, causing plaintiff to collide with defendant's vehicle. She alleges she suffered injuries to her back, neck and right shoulder, medical expenses and lost wages as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds McDevitt responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to yield to the right of way.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than the jurisdictional limits of the court and all other relief that is proper.
She is represented by Gary. K. Burger of Burger Law LLC in St. Louis.
