Man sues oncoming driver for intersection turn collision
A Jefferson County man brought a lawsuit against a driver on allegations of vehicular negligence in 2015.
Anthony D. Ned filed a complaint against Evelyn R. Marshall of Port Arthur in Jefferson County District Court May 26, claiming the defendant liable for injuries in a February 2015 automotive collision.
According to the suit, the plaintiff was in the process of turning onto 2nd Avenue in Jefferson County traveling northbound from the intersection of 7th Street and 2nd Avenue on or about Feb. 22, when the defendant, allegedly traveling southbound on 2nd Avenue, attempted to make a left-hand turn into a parking lot, failed to yield the right-of-way to the plaintiff and struck the plaintiff’s vehicle on the driver’s side.
Stating that Marshall was in breach of duty to exercise reasonable care, the plaintiff cites the defendant with failure to keep a proper lookout; yield the right of way; operate her vehicle at a reasonable rate of speed under the circumstances; brake in time to avoid impact; and stay in her own lane.
Ned maintains that Marshall’s alleged negligence caused him to suffer pain, suffering, and mental anguish; impairment; loss of earnings; property damage, and medical expenses.
The plaintiff seeks compensation in excess of $1 million or available alternative amounts, along with pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney’s fees; expenses, and costs.
The plaintiff is represented by J. Trenton Bond and Chris Portner of Portner*Bond in Beaumont.
