PHILADELPHIA – A lawsuit over a motor vehicle accident in which a plaintiff sustained severe injuries North Philadelphia was set for a current status hearing in state court, in addition to a future arbitration hearing.

A hearing was set for Court chambers in Philadelphia City Hall on Monday, in connection with Shaun E. Presley’s pending litigation against Richard A. Crooms, Jr. Both men are Philadelphia residents.

On March 27, 2013, Presley was driving eastbound on the 1400 block of West Glenwood Avenue approaching the intersection with North Broad Street in Philadelphia, when Crooms allegedly engaged in careless and negligent driving and caused a three-car collision.

Crooms’ vehicle struck the rear of Presley’s vehicle, which in turn, caused Presley to rear-end the vehicle in front of him at that time. Presley’s suit claims Crooms was speeding at the time of the crash, driving inattentively and disregarding the motor vehicle operation laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, among other violations.

Presley allegedly suffered strain and sprain of his cervical, thoracic, dorsal and lumbosacral spine, left knee, neuritis and radiculitis, headaches, aches, pain and mental anguish in the accident.

In addition to the status hearing, an arbitration hearing for this case has been set for Nov. 24.

The plaintiff is seeking judgment not in excess of $50,000.

The plaintiff is represented by Marc A. Weinberg of Saffren & Weinberg, in Jenkintown.

The defendant is represented by Jamie L. Augustinsky, in Wayne.
