A Beaumont woman claims she and two minor children sustained various injuries after a driver failed to obey a stop sign and struck their vehicle.

Lakeli Anderson filed a lawsuit Dec. 1 in Jefferson County District Court against Brandy Marie Williams.

In her complaint, Anderson alleges she drove on Perry Street on March 29, 2010, when Williams failed to obey a stop sign and struck her vehicle. At the time of the collision, two minor children were riding in Anderson's vehicle with her. They are identified as K. Eaglin and A. Arling.

Because of the collision, Anderson sustained injuries to her neck, back and right leg, according to the complaint. Eaglin suffered from severe headaches and bruising to his forehead and experienced anxiety while Arling suffered pain to his neck, back, left shoulder and arm, the suit states.

Anderson and both children experienced a diminished earning capacity and sustained physical impairment, mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement, the complaint says. Anderson claims she also incurred medical costs and lost wages.

Anderson blames Williams for causing the collision, saying she negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply her brakes, failed to stop at the intersection and failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign.

In her complaint, Anderson seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

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

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

Case No. E191-411
