Two Texas residents are suing a driver and his employers, alleging the driver was intoxicated when he caused a vehicle collision with the plaintiffs.
Rachelle Ann Aaron and David Wayne Geisendorff filed a lawsuit June 26 in Galveston County District Court against Joseph Marcus Dwayne Minix, Superior Energy Services Inc., and Concentric Pipe and Tool Rentals, alleging negligence and gross negligence.
On June 29, 2013, the complaint states, the plaintiffs were passengers in a vehicle traveling westbound on state Highway 87 in Crystal Beach, when their vehicle was suddenly struck by a vehicle operated by Minix, who was driving under the scope of his employment with Superior Energy Services and its operating division, Concentric Pipe and Tool Rentals.
The suit says Minix was intoxicated at the time of the collision. As a result of the defendants' negligence, the complaint alleges, the plaintiffs have sustained injuries, mental anguish, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, disfigurement and impairment and medical expenses.
Aaron and Geisendorff seek monetary damages between $200,000 and $1 million, interest and court costs. They are represented by attorney Stephen T. Liss of The Law Offices of Stephen Liss in Houston.
