ST. LOUIS — A legal representative is suing a car manufacturer and dealer, citing alleged negligence and civil conspiracy.
Carol Alexander, as the legal representative of Corey Jon Wantuck, filed a complaint July 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against Suzuki Motor of America Inc., Suzuki Motor Corp. and Nissin Kogyo Co. Ltd. alleging that they violated the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 26, 2013, Corey Wantuck suffered permanent and disabling body and brain injuries when the braking system of his motorcycle failed to provide adequate braking pressure. He continues to suffer impairments, the claim states. The plaintiff holds Suzuki Motor of America, Suzuki Motor and Nissin Kogyo responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently manufactured and sold the motorcycle with a front brake master cylinder that was defective and in an unreasonably dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, plus interest, attorney’s fees, costs and all other necessary and proper relief. She is represented by James P. Lemonds of Brown & Croupen PC in St. Louis.
