ST. LOUIS — A motorist is suing another driver, alleging negligence.
Shyrell Smith filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Jacob Fisher alleging that he breached his duty to exercise the highest degree of care while operating a motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 4, 2013 she was operating a motor vehicle northbound on Grand Boulevard and entering its intersection with Council Plaza in St. Louis when the defendant carelessly attempted to make a left turn and hit her vehicle. She allegedly sustained serious, painful and permanent injuries to her head, face, neck, back chest and knees.
The plaintiff holds Fisher responsible because he allegedly failed to maintain careful lookout, failed to yield the right of way, and failed to reduce speed or stop to avoid collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages of not less than $25,000, costs of this action, and all other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Ely Hadowsky of Brown & Brown in St. Louis.
