In March 2012, Ashley Selman, individually and as next of friend of Amaya Selman, filed suit against Beaumont local Lisa Everett, who allegedly rear-ended the two plaintiffs.
The case was called up for trial on July 31.
According to the lawsuit, on April 5, 2010, the Selmans were rear-ended by a vehicle operated by Everett.
The suit alleged Everett negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, control her rate of speed and apply her brakes in a timely manner.
The plaintiffs were suing for their alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.
