Three Beaumont residents sue over rear-end collision
Three Beaumont residents have filed suit against the driver who they claim rear-ended the vehicle in which they were riding.
Earna Hinson Green, Vincent West and Lillie West claim they were riding in a vehicle traveling south on Highway 69 when defendant Kara Shaver rear-ended their vehicle.
Because of the collision, the three plaintiffs incurred medical costs and experienced physical pain and suffering, according to the complaint filed Dec. 13 in Jefferson County District Court. In addition, they suffered physical impairment and mental anguish, the suit states.
Shaver negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, the complaint says.
In their complaint, the plaintiffs are seeking damages within the jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court and exemplary damages, 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.
They will be represented by Travis McCall of McCall and McCall in Beaumont.
The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D191-470
