North Illinois accident leads to injury suit

Herbert Simmons filed a lawsuit on November 16 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Shirley J. Harmon and Med Star Ambulance.

Simmons claimed in his filed complaint that he was driving a 2000 Ford Crown Victoria north on North Illinois Street on December 28, 2010, when he stopped due to traffic. Harmon, who had been driving a 1991 Lexus behind Simmons, hit the Ford, according to Simmons’s complaint. The suit also states that at the time of the collision, Simmons was driving for Med Star.

Simmons claimed that, in addition to his neck, back, spine, and face injuries, he also experienced pain and suffering, incurred medical costs, along with low wages, in the complaint. He also added that he sustained a permanent impairment of his earning capacity and lost the enjoyment of a normal life.

The complaint states that Harmon had been negligently driving too fast, without a regard for the safety of other drivers on the road, failed to maintain a proper lookout, failed to properly apply her breaks, failed to stop or swerve to avoid a collision, and also failed to exercise ordinary care.

Simmons also added that he named Med Star as a respondent in discovery. He stated that he believed that it has information that is essential in determining who else should be named as defendants in the lawsuit against Harmon.

In his complaint, Simmons also stated that he is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000 plus medical and other additional costs.
