The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Bellaire attorney Paul Higdon of Stern, Miller & Higdon represents her.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.
