Motorist claims she was injured when postal employee backed into vehicle

LOS ANGELES – A Pacific Palisades resident alleges a U.S. Postal Service employee collided with her vehicle while she was driving in an alley in Santa Monica County and caused injuries.

Beth Farrelly filed a complaint on March 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division against the United States of America, Sandra Jeanette Ramirez and Does 1 to 10 alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 6, 2014, she suffered physical injuries and damages to her vehicle after a collision with Ramirez, a United States Postal Service employee. The plaintiff holds The United States of America, Ramirez and Does 1 to 10 responsible because Ramirez negligently backed the USPS vehicle into the plaintiff’s at an excessive speed.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, general and compensatory damages; medical expenses; interest; court costs and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Andrew P. Altholz of Attorney at Law in Santa Monica.
