ST. LOUIS – A driver alleges he hit a curb to avoid a collision with a tractor-trailer and is seeking damages from the transportation company.
Maurice Griffin filed a complaint on July 10 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 23, 2015, he was injured in an accident on Hall Street at or near its intersection with Carrie Avenue in St. Louis when defendant's tractor-trailer, driven by its employee, made a left turn in front of his vehicle, causing him to swerve and hit a curb to avoid a collision. He alleges he suffered injuries to his right shoulder and will continue to suffer great pain, lost wages and medical expenses as a result of the accident.
The plaintiff holds Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. responsible because the defendant's driver failed to yield to the right of way and failed to keep proper lookout.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant of more than $25,000, plus costs and such other and further relief to which he is entitled. He is represented by Shaun Falvey of Goldblatt & Singer in St. Louis.
