A Jefferson County man claims he suffered physical pain and mental anguish after a driver failed to yield the right-of-way.

Adam M. Lovett filed a lawsuit May 25 in Jefferson County District Court against Larry Jerome Quebodeaux.

Lovett claims he drove east on the 8000 block of College when Quebodeaux, who attempted to exit a private drive, violently struck Lovett.

Because of the collision, Lovett experienced disfigurement and physical impairment and incurred medical costs, according to the complaint.

Lovett accuses Quebodeaux of negligence by failing to maintain a proper lookout, yield the right-of-way, keep a proper distance, pay attention to surrounding vehicles, timely apply his brakes, drive safely to avoid a collision, warn Lovett of his plan to drive in an unsafe manner, swerve to avoid a collision, sound his horn and control his speed.

In his complaint, Lovett seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Richard J. Fresuti of the Law Office of Richard J. Fresuti in Houston will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: D186-945.
