A Beaumont woman claims an insurance company refused to pay her after an uninsured driver struck her vehicle.

Tabitha Davis filed a lawsuit July 19 in Jefferson County District Court against USAA Casualty Insurance Company.

Davis claims she drove north in the 3900 block of Eastex Freeway in Beaumont on July 17, 2007, when Adrian Guillory, an uninsured driver, failed to control his speed and rear-ended her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Tabitha Davis and the two minor passengers in her vehicle -- Destinee Davis and Nathaniel Davis -- suffered physical pain, mental anguish, disfigurement and physical impairment and incurred medical costs, the suit states.

At the time of the accident, Guillory drove a vehicle belonging to Anita Matthen. Under her automobile policy, there is no third-party coverage, the complaint says.

In her suit, Davis seeks actual damages, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Charlton P. Hornsby of Beaumont will be representing her.

Jefferson County District Court case number: E187-319.
