ST. LOUIS – Two St. Louis residents allege that they were injured when a driver distracted by a cellphone rear-ended their vehicle in St. Louis.
Dawn Weber and Melissa Weber filed a complaint on March 26 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Evans Flooring, Bradley Evans and Mark A. Clubb alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on July 15, 2016, Dawn Weber and Melissa Weber were injured when defendant Clubb, who was acting in the course of scope of his employment with defendants Evans Flooring and Evans, negligently caused the vehicle he was driving to struck the rear of their vehicle, causing it to strike another vehicle in front of them. The suit states Clubb was text messaging on his phone and failed to stop.
As a result of the collision, the plaintiffs allege they suffered injuries.
The plaintiffs hold Evans Flooring, Evans and Clubb responsible because defendant Clubb allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout, followed their vehicle more closely than reasonable and failed to stop or reduce speed to avoid collision.
The plaintiffs seek punitive damages, with interest, costs of court and all other relief that are just and proper. They are represented by James E. Godfrey, Deborah A. Suter and Kerry B. Banahan of Evans & Dixon LLC in St. Louis.
