A mother has filed a personal injury suit on the behalf of her minor son, whom she claims suffered injuries from being struck by a car while crossing an alley near an appliance store.
On August 20, Terri Agney, mother of Zachary Agney, filed suit in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court against Jennifer Martin and Raymond Agney, doing business as T-Berry’s Appliance.
According to Terri Agney, her son was crossing an alley behind T-Berry’s Appliance on July 3, when he was struck by a Pontiac Montana Minivan driven by Jennifer Martin.
The suit claims that the accident caused Zachary Agney to suffer injuries to his head, skull, face, back, arms, and legs, incur medical expenses, and become likely to suffer disability throughout his life. The suit also claims that the accident has caused him permanent scarring and that he will remain disfigured.
Agney also claims that the accident caused her to incur medical expenses.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Martin for failure to maintain a proper lookout, driving at an excessive speed, failure to exercise due care, failure to warn of her approach, and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Raymond Agney for failure to maintain his premises in a safe condition.
The suit says that on and before July 3, 2009, Raymond Agney piled appliances and other debris outside the rear of the building, including on or near the public roadway, resulting in the view of passing motorist being obstructed and a public nuisance being created.
Terri Agney seeks damages in excess of $150,000, plus costs, from the four-count suit.
