ST. LOUIS – An adult and minor child allege they were injured when their vehicle was rear-ended by an employee of a St. Louis company in the city.
Carla Dunnigan and A.D., by and through her next friend, filed a complaint on April 30 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against McMahon Ford Co. and Donnell Allen alleging that negligence.
According to the complaint, on April 16, 2016, plaintiff Dunnigan was driving a motor vehicle with minor plaintiff A.D. as passenger and was stopped on Shaw Avenue in St. Louis when they were rear-ended by defendant Allen, who was acting in the course and scope of his employment with defendant McMahon.
Dunnigan alleges sustained injuries to her back and neck while A.D. sustained injuries to her neck and right shoulder.
The plaintiffs hold McMahon Ford Co. and Allen responsible because Allen allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout, operated his vehicle at an excessive rate of speed and failed to stop, swerve or reduce speed to avoid collision.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages of more than $25,000 for each plaintiff, plus costs of this action and all further relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Kari S. Peterson of O'Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin LLC in St. Louis.
