Pamela Paige Bigler is suing David Neal Guy for an auto collision that occurred on more than a year ago.
She filed her personal injury lawsuit with the Jefferson County District Court on May 30. Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th Judicial District, has been assigned to the case.
According to Bigler's original petition, "on or about May 20, 2006, a collision occurred because of the recklessness and carelessness of defendant, causing severe and permanent injuries to plaintiff."
The suit does not state how or where the incident occurred.
"Plaintiff would show that on or about May 20, 2006 she sustained personal injuries due to the negligence of the defendant in an automobile accident in Jefferson County," the suit said.
The suit goes on to say Guy is guilty for failing to keep a proper lookout; driving at an excessive rate of speed; failing to yield the right-of-way; lack of proper control; and failing to make a proper and timely application of the brakes.
"Plaintiff alleges that one, more than one, or all of the foregoing acts or omissions constitute negligence and as the actions of the defendant have no excuse in law, his acts and omissions also constitute negligence per Se; the defendant thus should be held liable for said negligent acts that were a proximate cause of the injuries sustained by the plaintiff," the suit said.
Bigler is suing for past and future mental suffering, medical expenses, loss of earnings and loss of earning capacity, physical impairment and disfigurement, plus emotional distress and loss of the ability to enjoy life.
"Plaintiff further sues the defendant for all pre-judgment interest and post-judgment interest as allowed by law," the suit said.
Bigler is represented by attorney Trent Bond of the Reaud, Morgan & Quinn law firm. She is demanding a trial by jury.
