Karen Davis is suing A&A Super Toters, alleging one of the company’s employees, who was allegedly under the influence, caused an automobile collision.
The suit was filed Feb. 4 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, on March 9, 2012, Davis was a passenger in a truck being driven by Augusta Simon Sr., who is now deceased and was allegedly under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time.
The suit states Simon negligently caused a distraction and failed to drive in a single lane, causing him to lose control, slid counter clockwise, roll to the left side of the road and finally crash upside down.
Simon was in the course and scope of his employment with A&A at the time of the incident.
The suit alleges the company should have known he was an incompetent driver.
On top of exemplary damages, the plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.
Houston attorney E.J. Anakani represents her.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. B193-887
