A Beaumont man claims he sustained right shoulder and rib injuries after a driver collided with his vehicle in the midst of a turn.

Robert Wilson filed a lawsuit Oct. 7 in Jefferson County District Court against James Cowart and Williamson Construction.

In his complaint, Wilson alleges he was driving on Washington Boulevard in Beaumont on Nov. 19, 2009, when Coward, who was driving a vehicle for Williamson Construction, slammed into his vehicle while making a left-hand turn.

In addition to his injuries, Wilson incurred medical costs, lost his earnings and his earning capacity and sustained physical impairment, physical pain and mental anguish, the suit states.

In his complaint, Wilson seeks an unspecified judgment, plus interest, costs and other relief to which he may be entitled.

Jonathan C. Juhan and J.J. Bragg of Beaumont will be representing him.

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

Case No. E191-131
