A Missouri woman filed a personal injury claim after sustaining severe injuries in a St. Clair County car accident. The woman alleges injuries to her neck, back, shoulder, hip, and wrist. She is suing for injury against the driver of the vehicle, as well as his employer.
This Missouri car accident lawsuit alleges the Plaintiff was driving west on State Street, and the employee (defendant) was driving his truck in the same direction on the same street when he hit her. Allegedly, the driver of the truck traveled outside of his lane and hit the woman's car, causing her to not only sustain injuries but also to miss work. She sued for lost wages, medical costs and pain and suffering.
It is alleged that there is evidence of truck driver negligence in several respects:
1. That he was driving over the speed limit;
2. That he failed to drive with reasonable caution or carefully;
3. That he failed to stop or slow down before the collision; and
4. That he drove without a driver's license.
