A Jefferson County man is suing over claims he sustained injuries in a car accident.

James T. Ienna filed a lawsuit May 2 in the Galveston Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Raymond D. Goffney, citing negligence.

Ienna claims he suffered injuries when his vehicle was struck by the defendant's vehicle while traveling east on Seawall Boulevard near the intersection with 41st Street in Galveston County on June 24, 2012, causing him injuries. According to the brief, Goffney failed to control his speed and made an unsafe left turn, resulting in the accident and Ienna's injuries that have required ongoing medical attention.

Ienna is seeking damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court, interest and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Beaumont attorney Ryan C. Scott of The Scott Law Firm PLLC.
