A man has filed suit against the driver who he claims drove too fast and caused a collision.
Michael Joseph Malonson claims he was driving on Nov. 13, 2010, when defendant Andrew Roberson struck his vehicle.
Because of the collision, Malonson incurred medical costs, experienced physical pain and suffering and endured mental anguish and physical impairment, according to the complaint filed Nov. 13 in Jefferson County District Court.
Malonson blames Roberson for causing the collision, saying he negligently drove too fast, failed to exercise due care, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to maintain proper control of his vehicle, failed to swerve to avoid the collision, failed to timely apply his brakes and failed to use evasive action.
In his complaint, Malonson is seeking unspecified damages, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.
Jeffrey C. Chilton of Packard Lapray in Beaumont will be representing him.
The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D193-590
