In a recently filed court document, a man claims he sustained a neck injury after a driver rear-ended the vehicle in which he was riding.
Dwayne Randle Sr. filed a lawsuit March 14 in Jefferson County District Court against Nadia Alexis Choates.
In his complaint, Randle alleges he rode in a vehicle traveling north on Wren Way in Beaumont on Aug. 4 when the vehicle stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Calder Avenue. Choates was also traveling north on the same road when she rear-ended the vehicle in which Randle rode, according to the complaint.
In addition to his neck injuries, Randle experienced pain, suffering and mental anguish; lost wages and his earning capacity; and suffered physical impairment, the suit states.
Randle blames Choates for causing the collision, saying she negligently failed to control her speed, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply her brakes, failed to drive in a safe manner and failed to control her vehicle.
In his complaint, Randle seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre- and post-judgment interest at the highest rate allowed by law, costs and other relief the court deems just.
Tommy L. Yeates of Moore Landrey in Beaumont will be representing him.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. B194-157
