A man has filed suit against the driver he claims made an unsafe lane change, causing a collision. He also names his insurance company as a defendant, saying it refused to pay medical costs associated with the incident.

Gregory Mobley filed suit July 22 in the Jefferson County District Court against Camirie J. Bazile and Allstate County Mutual Insurance Co. 

According to the complaint, Mobley was driving south on Highway 69 on Nov. 22, when defendant Bazile made an unsafe lane change and struck another vehicle. Bazile then proceeded to make a faulty evasive action and struck Mobley’s vehicle, according to the complaint.

Because of the collision, Mobley incurred medical costs. He requested compensation for his medical bills from defendant Allstate, the suit states. At the time of the accident, he had a policy through the company, the complaint says. However, Allstate refused to pay for him directly for his bills, Mobley says.

In addition to his medical costs, Mobley experienced physical pain and suffering, endured mental anguish and lost earnings, the complaint says. He also claims he suffered physical impairment.

Mobley blames Bazile for causing the collision, saying he failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to control his speed and failed to turn in a safe direction to avoid a collision.

Mobley is seeking damages within the jurisdictional limits of the court, plus pre-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs and other relief the court deems just.

He is being represented by attorney John Pat Parsons of Lindsay, Lindsay and Parsons in Beaumont.
