ST. LOUIS — A motorist is suing another driver, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Michael Bush filed a complaint on Jan. 2 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Ariel J. Milan, alleging that she failed to exercise the highest degree of care while operating a motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 5, 2017, he was operating a motor vehicle heading north on Hampton Avenue at its intersection with Wilson with a green light when the defendant attempted to make a left turn on a red light and collided with his vehicle. He allegedly sustained serious injuries to his lumbar spine, back, right hip, right legs and other parts of his body.
The plaintiff holds Milan responsible because she allegedly negligently ran the red light traffic signal and made an improper left turn, failed to yield right of way, and failed to keep proper lookout.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks judgment in his favor in an amount in excess of $25,000, costs of court, and such other relief that this court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Julie S. Siegel of Frankel, Rubin, Klein, Dubin, Siegel & Payne PC in St. Louis.
