BELLEVILLE — A Belleville motorist is suing another driver for allegedly disobeying a stop sign and striking the plaintiff's vehicle.
Caterine Hopper filed a complaint Jan. 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Choro Rysaliev, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 30, 2017, Hopper was traveling eastbound on East B Street, approaching its intersection with North Charles Street in Belleville, when Rysaliev's car ran through a stop sign and struck the driver's side of the plaintiff's vehicle.
Hopper claims she sustained injuries to her left side and right wrist and was caused to suffer lost wages, medical care and treatment expenses, and disability.
The plaintiff alleges Rysaliev failed to maintain a careful lookout, failed to yield right of way and failed to properly apply the brakes to avoid a collision.
Hopper seeks trial by jury, damages of not less than $50,000 and all further just and proper relief. She is represented by attorney John F. Pawloski of Law Offices of Williams Caponi & Associates PC in Belleville.
