A Beaumont man claims he incurred medical costs after a driver ran a red light and struck his vehicle.

Elliott Green filed a lawsuit Sept. 8 in Jefferson County District Court against Seth Landolt and William Landolt.

In his complaint, Green alleges he was driving on College Street in Beaumont on Sept. 20, 2009, when defendant Seth Landolt, who was driving a vehicle insured by defendant William Landolt, disobeyed a red light and slammed into Green's vehicle.

In addition to his medical costs, Green lost earnings and his earning capacity and sustained physical impairment, physical pain and mental anguish, according to the complaint. In addition, he incurred property damages, the suit states.

Green blames Seth Landolt for causing the collision, saying he negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply his brakes and failed to control his speed.

Green seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Jonathan C. Juhan of Beaumont will be representing him.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E190-873
