A Beaumont woman has filed suit against the driver who she claims rear-ended her vehicle.

Camisha Broussard claims she was stopped at the exit ramp of Highway 69 when defendant Kendrick Jamar Morris collided with the back of her vehicle, pushing Broussard into the car in front of her.

Because of the accident, Broussard sustained serious injuries to her neck and back and incurred medical costs, according to the complaint. In addition, she lost her wage earning capacity; experienced mental anguish, physical pain, suffering and disability; and sustained physical impairment, the suit states.

Morris negligently drove too fast, failed to keep a proper distance from Broussard's vehicle and drove inattentively, the complaint says.

In her complaint, Broussard is seeking actual damages, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law and other relief the court deems just.

Clay Dugas and Mike JacobEllis of Clay Dugas and Associates in Beaumont will be representing her.

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

Case No. E190-726
