ST. LOUIS — A passenger is suing two motor vehicle drivers, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Demond Ross filed a complaint on Jan. 22 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Ronald Adams and William Cook, alleging that they failed to maintain proper control of the vehicles they were driving.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 22, 2013 he was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Adams when he negligently turned into the path of Cook's vehicle and the two vehicles collided. Ross allegedly sustained injuries to his neck, shoulders, back and knees.
The plaintiff holds Adams and Cook responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to keep proper lookout for other vehicles, failed to obey traffic signal, and failed to reduce speed, stop or swerve to avoid collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks judgment against each defendant in an amount in excess of $25,000, plus costs expended for this action. He is represented by Cecil L. Skaggs of Central West End Law Office in St. Louis.
