CLEARWATER — A motorist is suing a driver and car owner, alleging negligence and vicarious liability in a crash that injured the plaintiff.
Halida Hasanovic filed a complaint Jan. 5 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Justin Bloomer and Wesley McCalla, alleging they failed to exercise standard care and skill in the operation of a vehicle.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 30, 2016, Hasanovic was operating a motor vehicle at 66th Street North and Ulmerton Road in Pinellas County. The suit says Bloomer, driving a 2001 Toyota owned by McCalla, collided with a third vehicle that then collided with Hasanovic's car.
The lawsuit states Hasanovic sustained bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, impairment, disability, inconvenience, aggravation of a pre-existing condition, mental anguish, loss of earnings and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Bloomer failed to adequately maintain and operate a motor vehicle so as not to cause harm, and McCalla breached duty of care by allowing motor vehicle for negligent operation.
Hasanovic seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, plus court costs and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Jeffrey K. Chambers of Chambers Law Group PA in St. Petersburg.
