PHILADELPHIA — A woman is suing Robert Snyder, a Philadelphia resident, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
New Jersey resident Beth Gussman filed a complaint on May 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Snyder, alleging that the Philadelphia resident allegedly failed to operate his vehicle under proper and adequate control.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 20, 2014, she was operating a motor vehicle, a 2013 Nissan Rogue, and stopped at the exit of a shopping center in Trenton, New Jersey, when the defendant's vehicle, suddenly and without warning, violently collided into the rear of her vehicle, causing her to sustain severe and grievous injuries, resulting in great pain and suffering, impairment, disability, mental anguish, humiliation and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Snyder responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep proper lookout, failed to exercise due care and precautions under the circumstances, operated his vehicle at an excessive rate of speed and violated the assured clear distance rule.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $75,000, plus interest, costs and attorney's fees. She is represented by Brad S. Tabakin and Richard Wolfe of Tabakin Wolfe LLP in Plymouth Meeting.
