American Mercury Lloyds Insurance wants a dollar amount put on a suit brought by Louvenia Harding, who sued the insurer for underinsured motorist benefits following an automobile collision that occurred two years ago.
As previously reported, the suit was filed May 13 in Jefferson County District Court. Blake Guidry is also named as a defendant.
Court records show American Mercury Lloyds filed its special exceptions on July 31, requesting that the plaintiff specify her damages and plead the minimum and maximum damages sought.
According to the lawsuit, on June 9, 2011, Harding was traveling south on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard when Guidry rear-ended her.
Harding required medical attention following the collision and made a timely claim for underinsured benefits.
The suit further accuses Guidry of negligently failing to keep a proper lookout and failing to control his speed.
The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.
Beaumont attorney Ryan Scott represents her.
Houston attorney Michael Wright represents American Mercury Lloyds.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. B194-334
