Steven and Victoria Diaz filed a lawsuit Oct. 28 in Jefferson County District Court against Jordan R. Singleton, citing negligence.

According to the complaint, Victoria Diaz was a passenger in Singleton's car Nov. 12, 2012, when Singleton failed to yield at a stop sign, causing a collision with another vehicle. The complaint states Diaz, who was a minor at the time, sustained injuries, and she has since become an adult. According to the lawsuit, Steven Diaz is her father. Singleton is accused of negligence and negligence per se.

The Diazes seek damages, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, interest and costs of court. They are represented by attorney Ryan C. Scott of The Scott Law Firm in Beaumont.
