Area residents Geraldine Stagg and April Pete have filed suit against Pro Field Services and one of its truck drivers, Vernon Jordan, who allegedly caused a tractor-trailer collision.
The suit was filed June 28 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, on June 25 the plaintiffs were stopped in heavy traffic on Interstate 10 when Jordan, who was driving a tractor-trailer owned by Pro Field, struck them from behind and caused a multi-vehicle collision.
The suit faults Pro Services with negligent entrustment and further accuses Jordan of negligently failing to maintain a proper lookout.
The plaintiffs are suing for their alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.
Beaumont attorney Clay Dugas represents them.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.
