A Harris County woman is suing an insurance company over coverage for injuries she sustained in a vehicle collision.
Lisa Schoelles filed a lawsuit Oct. 22 in Harris County District Court against USAA Insurance, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 7, 2012, Schoelles was driving in Harris County when Debbion Evan suddenly struck her vehicle. The suit alleges Evan was negligent in failing to exercise proper and safe lookout, speeding, and driving in an unreasonable manner, among other negligent acts or omissions.
As a result, the suit says, Schoelles sustained personal injuries, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, impairment and disfigurement, loss of wages and earning capacity, and medical expenses.
At the time, the plaintiff was covered by an insurance policy issued by USAA Insurance, which covered uninsured and under-insured motorists but is not adequate to compensate for Schoelles' injuries and damages.
Schoelles seeks damages of more than $100,000, a jury trial, plus court costs. She is represented by attorney Matthew Matheny of Provost Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont.
Harris County District Court case number B-197730.
