A Jefferson County man claims he sustained various injuries after a driver failed to yield the right-of-way and collided with his vehicle.
Greg Phillips filed a lawsuit Sept. 7 in Jefferson County District Court against Tyrone Kemp.
In his complaint, Phillips alleges he drove east on 32nd Street in Port Arthur at its intersection with Fourth Street on July 13 when Kemp failed to stop at a stop sign and struck Phillips’s vehicle.
Because of the collision, Phillips incurred medical costs; experienced mental anguish, physical pain and suffering and disability; and lost his enjoyment of life, according to the complaint. He also lost wages, lost his earning capacity and sustained physical impairment, the suit states.
Kemp failed to yield the right-of-way and drove inattentively, the complaint says.
In his complaint, Phillips is seeking a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.
Clay Dugas and Reginald Blakeley of Beaumont will be representing him.
The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D193-057
