By Sandra Lane | Mar 4, 2019

EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist claims she was injured in a Wood River collision. 

Kathy H. Thomas filed the lawsuit in Madison County Circuit Court on Feb. 27 against Chontella M. Smith, whose vehicle collided with the plaintiff's car while both were driving in Wood River on April 13, 2017.

The lawsuit states that Smith allegedly failed to yield to the right-of-way, failed to maintain a proper lookout and operated her vehicle in an improper manner.

Thomas claims she sustained both internal and external injuries as a result of the accident, “resulting in disability and disfigurement and which has caused and will cause her in the future to sustain great pain and mental anguish.” 

She claims that in addition to current and future medical expenses she is obligated to pay, she has sustained loss of earnings as a result of her injuries and will continue to do so in the future.

The plaintiff asks the court to award damages to her of more than $50,000. She is represented by Gregory M. Tobin of Pratt & Tobin PC in East Alton.
