A Harris County man is suing two individuals, alleging negligence and traffic violations in a highway encounter that he says left him with serious injuries and property damage.

Mark Wooten of Humble filed a lawsuit Aug. 11 in Jefferson County District Court against Huntr Cain Thompson and Sean Denzil Thompson, both of Orange, alleging vehicular negligence in the 2013 collision.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 14, 2013, Huntr Thompson was operating a 2014 Ford Mustang owned by Sean Denzil Thompson on Southwest Highway 73 near Englin Road in Jefferson County at an unsafe speed. The suit says Thompson lost control of his automobile and struck the plaintiff’s vehicle, sending it into a concrete barrier.

The lawsuit says the defendant failed to keep a proper lookout, pay attention to his driving, control and reduce his speed, and apply his brakes in time to avoid the collision.

The suit also charges Sean Thompson with negligent entrustment of his vehicle.

The plaintiff alleges pain, suffering, anguish, disfigurement, impairment, property damage, lost wages and medical expenses.

Wooten seeks compensation for general and special damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional amount, pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, expenses and costs. He is represented by attorney Edward Fisher of Provost & Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont.

Jefferson County District Court case number B-197428.
