A Jefferson County woman claims she sustained severe injuries when a driver rear-ended her.

Gay Davidson filed a lawsuit June 27 in Jefferson County District Court against McDonald Spencer Jr.

In her complaint, Davidson claims she drove west in the 3500 block of College Street in Beaumont on April 18 when Spencer, who drove a 2005 Chevrolet Suburban in the same direction, suddenly struck the rear of her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Davidson sustained physical pain and mental anguish, incurred medical costs and lost earnings and her earning capacity, according to the complaint. In addition, Davidson suffered physical impairment, the suit states.

Spencer blames Davidson for causing the collision, saying she negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply the brakes, drove too fast, failed to turn to the right to avoid the collision and failed to turn to the left to avoid the collision.

In her complaint, Davidson seeks an unspecified judgment, plus costs, interest and other relief the court deems just.

Michael R. Ramsey of the Mostyn Law Firm in Beaumont will be representing her.

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

Case No. D190-413
