A Beaumont man claims he incurred medical costs because of injuries he sustained in a multi-vehicular collision.

Mark Anthony Mouton Sr. filed a lawsuit Oct. 20 in Jefferson County District Court against Brett Alan Tremblay.

In his complaint, Mouton claims he was driving south on U.S. Highway 69 in Hardin County when the incident occurred.

"The Defendant, Brett Alan Tremblay, had failed to control his speed and struck the vehicle behind the Plaintiff knocking that vehicle into the Plaintiff's vehicle causing the Plaintiff's injuries and damages as set forth herein together with totaling out the Plaintiff's vehicle," the suit states.

In addition to his medical costs, Mouton incurred physical pain and mental anguish and sustained physical impairment, according to the complaint. He also lost his wages and his earning capacity, the complaint says.

Mouton blames Tremblay for causing the collision, saying he negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to control his speed, failed to timely apply his brakes and drove too fast.

Mouton seeks a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Ernest J. Browne Jr. of Browne and Browne in Beaumont will be representing him.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. B191-255
