A Jefferson County resident has filed suit against the driver who she claims failed to yield the right-of-way and caused a collision. 

Christin Alicia Lowrey claims she was driving in Jefferson County on Jan. 14 when defendant Wilma Quaina Wiltz-Broussard struck her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Lowrey experienced physical pain and mental anguish, incurred medical costs, lost earnings and her earning capacity and sustained physical impairment and physical disfigurement, according to the complaint filed March 13 in Jefferson County District Court.

Wiltz-Broussard negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, drove too fast, failed to yield the right-of-way, lacked proper control and failed to timely apply her brakes, the suit states.

In her complaint, Lowrey is seeking a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

John Werner and Taylor Miller of Reaud, Morgan and Quinn in Beaumont will be representing her.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. A194-150
