PHILADELPHIA — A married couple's lawsuit against Ciara Connor, an Upper Darby resident, alleges negligence and claims that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Sophia Whyte and Carlton Whyte filed a complaint on May 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Connor, alleging that the defendant failed to properly operate and control her motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on May 17, 2014, while Sophia Whyte was seated in the passenger seat of the vehicle owned by Carlton Whyte, which was lawfully parked in front of 6940 Terminal Square in Darby, suddenly and without warning the motor vehicle operated by the defendant violently collided with their vehicle, causing Sophia White to suffer serious personal injuries resulting in great physical pain and mental anguish and medical expenses. The plaintiffs holds Connor responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep proper lookout, failed to avoid striking their motor vehicle, failed to stop within an assured safe distance and operated her vehicle at an excessive rate of speed.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant in an amount not exceeding $150,000, plus costs of this suit and such other relief as the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by Alan E. Denenberg of Abramson & Denenberg PC in Philadelphia.
