A Hardin County couple has filed suit against the driver who they claim rear-ended the camper they were hauling.
Robert Black and Jo Ann Cook claim Black was driving a vehicle that was pulling a camper trailer behind it on Oct. 17. Suddenly, defendant Wesley Aaron Brumley struck the back of the trailer, according to the complaint filed May 20 in Jefferson County District Court. At the time of the collision, Cook was riding as a passenger in the vehicle.
Because of the collision, Black and Cook incurred medical costs, lost their earnings and their earning capacities and experienced physical pain and mental anguish, the suit states. They also suffered physical impairment and physical disfigurement, the complaint says.
In their complaint, Black and Cook are seeking damages in excess of the minimum limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre- and post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs, punitive and exemplary damages and other relief the court deems just.
Paul F. Ferguson Jr. of Provost Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont will be representing them.
The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D194-362
