ST. LOUIS — A minor child is suing the driver of a vehicle that hit him, citing alleged negligence.
Jessie Robinson, a minor, by and through his mother Roshaunda McGowen, filed a complaint on Nov. 29 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Evelyn Cole alleging that she failed to maintain proper control of the motor vehicle she was driving.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 24 he was a pedestrian on Gravois Street near its intersection with Chippewa when the defendant carelessly operated a motor vehicle and collided with him, causing him to be thrown about and sustain serious and disabling injuries to his neck, shoulder, spine and right leg. The plaintiff holds Cole responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently caused the vehicle she was driving to collide with the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount, plus costs of this action, and all further relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Theodore H. Hoffman and Steven Gelfman of Hoffman & Gelfman Attorneys PC in St. Louis.
