A Galveston County resident is suing after sustaining injuries in an automobile accident.

Blake A. Painter filed a lawsuit April 9 in the Galveston County Court against Chanda R. Mckinney, citing negligence.

Painter alleges Mckinney failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to control her automobile, failed to pay attention and failed to yield.

Painter is seeking monetary relief of $100,000 or less.

The plaintiff is being represented in the case by attorneys Scott G. Robelen and William A. Forteith.
