The auto negligence lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Steinger did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.
Williams was trying to get through the intersection, but had to slow down because of traffic on June 9. That's why she was in the middle of the intersection when the Hyundai driven Linda Barson collided with Williams’ large SUV.
"Ms. Williams entered the intersection on a green light," Malcolm Cunningham, Williams' lawyer, said in the statement. "The police report estimates that Ms. Williams was traveling at 5 miles per hour when Mrs. Barson crashed into her. Authorities did not issue Ms. Williams with any citations or traffic violations."
Jerome Barson suffered “severed main arteries, massive internal bleeding, a fractured spine and massive internal organ damage,” according to the lawsuit. He died June 22.
Linda Barson also required hospitalization after she suffered “a cracked sternum, shattered right arm, broken right wrist, hand and fingers,” the lawsuit states.
Williams' publicist Stephanie Jones told the Associated Press that Williams will play at Wimbledon, where she goes in as the No. 10 seed.
