Oklahoma resident Shirley Womack is suing Beaumont local Albeno Bossette, who allegedly backed his car into her as she walked across a hospital front drive.
The suit was filed Oct. 11 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, on Aug. 17, 2011, Bossette was waiting in the front drive of Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in Beaumont when he was asked to move his car by hospital security. He could not pull forward because of a vehicle in front of hem.
“Defendant put car in reverse and hit the plaintiff as she was walking across the front drive of the hospital,” the suit states. “As a direct and proximate cause of the accident, plaintiff sustained injuries.”
The suit accuses the defendant of negligently failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian, failing to use his horn and failing to exercise proper precaution to avoid the incident.
The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain and impairment.
Sulphur Springs attorney Gregg Price represents her.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
