Florida Sun Sentinel A Miami woman has filed a civil lawsuit
against suspended Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress, alleging he is
responsible for a May car crash that left her with neck and back
injuries. Alise Smith, 27, says the New York Giants wide receiver
rear-ended her on Florida's Turnpike in Tamarac. Smith's lawsuit
filed in Broward Circuit Court seeks more than $15,000 for medical
bills, lost wages and damage to her car. "Ms. Smith, who was
wearing a seatbelt, was rear-ended by Mr. Burress, who failed to
maintain a safe braking distance, maintain a proper lookout or to
exercise reasonable care," said Gregory Dell, Smith's attorney.
"All of this was the cause of this accident and Ms. Smith's
resulting injuries." Dell said Burress had also let his car
insurance policy lapse three days before the May 16 accident.
