Individually and on behalf of her child, Trasanda Lofton has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Dr. William Hawkins.

The suit was filed Feb. 3 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on Nov. 2, 2009, Lofton and her child, identified only as T.L., were injured as a result of Dr. Hawkins' alleged negligence.

However, the suit does not state when or how the plaintiffs' injuries occurred, nor does the suit list a specific act of negligence.

According to the website, Dr. William N. Hawkins is a male with 18 years of medical experience and practices in obstetrics and gynecology in Beaumont.

The plaintiffs are suing for their mental and physical anguish.

Attorney Michael McGown of the Beaumont law firm Beckenstein, Norvell & Nathan law firm represents them.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. D191-873
