A man has filed suit against the driver who he claims attempted to turn in front of his vehicle, causing a collision.

Jimmie Johnson claims he was driving on Sept. 23, 2011, when defendant Doris Mire Cobb failed to yield the right-of-way at an intersection and struck his vehicle while attempting to make a left-hand turn. 

Because of the collision, Johnson incurred medical costs, experienced physical pain and suffering, sustained mental anguish and lost earnings, according to the complaint filed in Jefferson County District Court. He also endured physical impairment and incurred property damages, the suit states.

Johnson blames Cobb for causing the collision, saying he/she negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to maintain proper control, drove too fast, failed to properly apply his brakes and failed to yield the right of way.

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

B. Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups and Terrell in Beaumont will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Gary Sanderson.

Case No. L194-720
