WHEELING – A woman is suing Safety-Kleen Systems after she claims it was responsible for a car accident that caused her injuries and damages.
Jeffery A. Cecil was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On Nov. 3, 2015, Marylin Pavlic was operating her vehicle on National Road in Wheeling when she slowed for traffic and was struck from behind by Cecil, who was operating a vehicle owned by Safety-Kleen, according to a complaint originally filed in Ohio Circuit Court and later removed to federal court.
Pavlic claims the impact thrust her vehicle into a vehicle owned and operated by Samantha J. Walters.
The collision caused Pavlic to suffer personal injuries that were a direct and proximate result of the negligent, careless and improper conduct of the defendants, according to the suit.
Pavlic claims she endured pain and suffering; was annoyed, aggravated and inconvenienced; and suffered an impairment of her capacity to enjoy life.
Pavlic is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Christopher M. Turak of Gold, Khourey & Turak.
The defendants are represented by Stephen M. Houghton of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote LC.
The case is assigned to District Judge Frederick Stamp.
