ST. LOUIS – Damages are sought from a St. Louis woman who allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign at an intersection in the city and caused an auto accident.
Cheryl Poitra filed a complaint on Sept. 26 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Anna Powers alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 11, 2017, she was operating her motor vehicle traveling southbound on Brannon Avenue at its intersection with Lindenwood Avenue in St. Louis when the defendant entered into the intersection and struck her vehicle. She alleges she sustained serious and painful injuries to her left shoulder, chest, head, neck and back and incurred lost wages of $5,399.30.
The plaintiff holds Powers responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout, failed to stop at a stop sign and failed to yield to the right of way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of no less than $25,000, plus costs and all further relief as the court may deem proper and just. She is represented by Ely Hadowsky of Brown & Brown LLP in St. Louis.
