A Lumberton man has filed suit against his insurance company in an attempt to recoup money he claims he is owed after he sustained injuries in a collision.

Marty McNeil claims he was driving on N. Major Drive when Corina Lummus failed to yield the right-of-way and struck his vehicle on June 16, 2010.

Because of the collision, McNeil sustained injuries to his neck and back and incurred medical costs, according to the complaint filed Nov. 14 in Jefferson County District Court. In addition, he experienced physical pain, suffering, impairment and mental anguish and lost his earnings and his earning capacity, the suit states.

At the time of the collision, Lummus was not insured, so McNeil filed a claim with his insurance company, defendant Allstate Fire and Casualty Company, the complaint says.

In his complaint, McNeil is seeking the money he claims he is owed under his uninsured motorist policy, plus pre-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Brett S. Thomas of Roebuck, Thomas, Roebuck and Adams in Beaumont will be representing him.

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

Case No. E191-326
