A Hardin County woman claims she incurred medical costs after a driver rear-ended her vehicle as she sat at a stop light.

Patsy Lockhart filed a lawsuit June 25 in Jefferson County District Court against Kelli Broussard, Cheryse Renee Broussard and John Christopher Bagley.

In her complaint, Lockhart alleges she stopped at a stop signal while driving on Highway 96 North on July 1, 2011, when Kelli Broussard struck the back of her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Lockhart incurred medical costs; lost her earnings; and incurred physical pain, mental anguish and physical impairment, according to the complaint.

Lockhart seeks a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre- and post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs, punitive and exemplary damages and other relief the court deems just.

Paul F. Ferguson Jr. of Provost and Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont will be representing her.

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

Case No. D192-615
