A man has filed suit against the driver who he claims failed to maintain a proper lookout, causing a collision. 

Brett Nicholson claims he was driving on May 6 when defendant Carly Andrews failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign and collided with Nicholson.

Because of the collision, Nicholson experienced physical pain and mental anguish, endured a damaged earning capacity and sustained disfigurement, according to the complaint. He also experienced physical impairment and incurred medical costs, the suit states.

Andrews negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply her brakes, failed to drive safely, failed to yield the right-of-way and failed to maintain control of her vehicle, the complaint says.

In his complaint, Nicholson is seeking actual, punitive and exemplary damages, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

David P. Wilson of Provost Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court.

Case No. B193-498
