ST. LOUIS — A woman who was knocked to the ground by a car is suing the driver, alleging negligence.
Georgia Davis filed a complaint on Dec. 19 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Earl Williams alleging that he failed to the exercise the highest degree of care in operating his vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 6, 2016 she was standing with her back against her vehicle waiting for traffic to pass in order to cross the street when the defendant drove past her with his vehicle and struck her, knocking her to the ground. She sustained serious and permanent injuries to her low back, right knee, abdomen and chest wall; and incurred medical expenses in excess of $21,000.
The plaintiff holds Williams responsible because he allegedly negligently drove his vehicle too close to parked traffic, and failed to maintain careful lookout, stop or swerve to avoid striking plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks compensation in an amount in excess of $25,000, plus costs of this action, and any further relief as the court may deem just and fair. She is represented by Thomas Traube of Sorrell & Traube in St. Louis.
