ST. LOUIS – A passenger has filed suit against an Uber driver over allegations the driver violated a stop sign and collided with another vehicle in St. Louis.
Marcus Allen filed a complaint on Jan. 24 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Donald Moore alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 1, 2018, he was a passenger of defendant's Uber vehicle traveling east on Thomas Street in St. Louis when the vehicle collided with another vehicle with great force. The plaintiff alleges he sustained serious and permanent injuries to his neck, head, arms, legs, back and lungs and incurred medical bills of more than $48,000 and lost wages of more than $100 as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds Moore responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout, failed to yield to the right of way and negligently violated the stop sign.
The plaintiff seeks damages of no less than $25,000, plus costs of this action. He is represented by Darin Sorrell of Sorrell & Traube in St. Louis.
