NEW ORLEANS – A woman alleges she was injured in an auto accident with a postal service employee.
Gabrielle Jerome filed a complaint on May 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against the United States Postal Service and Keith Gremillion, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 8, 2015, she was driving her vehicle southbound on South Carrollton Avenue, in the left lane with Gremillion, driving a vehicle owned by the USPS, behind her. She states that when she stopped her vehicle due to traffic, the USPS vehicle collided into the back right of her vehicle, causing her to suffer severe physical injuries. The plaintiff holds United States Postal Service and Gremillion responsible because the Gremillion allegedly failed to see what he should have seen, failed to take what measures could or should have been taken to ensure the safety of others and failed to operate the USPS vehicle in a safe and prudent manner.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for any and all damages necessary and appropriate in the premises, plus interest, all costs of these proceedings and for all general and equitable relief. She is represented by Allison K. Nestor of The Law Offices of Allison K. Nestor in New Orleans and Michael E. Katz of Law Offices of Michael E. Katz LLC in New Orleans.
