The medical records of a plaintiff seeking to recover underinsured motorist benefits have been submitted. 

As previously reported, Area resident Kassie Johnson filed an automobile collision suit against Tyrus Wells and Texas Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. on Feb. 12 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on April 18 the medical affidavits of Haley Perry, custodian of medical records for Beaumont Bone & Joint, and Nancy Kuecker, custodian of medical records for Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth, were submitted.

According to the lawsuit, on July 2, 2011, Johnson was injured in an automobile collision caused by the negligence of Wells, who was allegedly driving while intoxicated.

The suit does not state where or how the incident occurred.

Following the collision, Johnson made a demand for underinsured motorist benefits.

Wells is further accused of negligently failing to yield the right-of-way, speeding and failing to keep a proper lookout.

Johnson is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

Beaumont attorney John Werner of the Reaud, Morgan & Quinn law firm represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E193-935
