TYLER — A Smith County woman is suing a Houston construction company, alleging negligence led to her suffering injuries. 

Tiffany Lloyd filed a lawsuit June 23 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Turner Construction, alleging corporation alleging negligence and breach of duty in failing to comply with the construction industry safety rules and regulations.

According to the complaint, in April 2007, Lloyd was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Jonathan Browning, traveling eastbound on East Erwin Street in Tyler. The suit says a portion of a fence from a structure being built by Turner came loose and flew into the roadway, hitting Lloyd and Browning, knocking them off the motorcycle and causing them injuries.

The lawsuit says Lloyd suffered physical pain and mental anguish, medical expenses, physical impairment and loss of earnings. 

The plaintiff alleges Turner Construction negligently constructed the fencing and failed to properly secure the area where the construction was taking place.

Lloyd seeks a trial by jury, all actual, economic and compensatory damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court, pre- and post-judgment interest and such other relief as she is entitled to receive. She is represented by attorneys Keith Miller of the Law Office of Keith Miller in Tyler, and Blake C. Erskine of Erskine & McMahon LLP in Longview.
