Discovery is underway in litigation brought by Jack Long, who claims a display vehicle on a rotating platform struck him while he was looking at a truck.
As previously reported, on March 11, Long filed suit against Daylight Motors in Jefferson County District Court, alleging the dealership failed to warn him of the dangerous condition.
The latest certificate of discovery in the suit was filed July 31, showing that Long served the defendant with his response to request for disclosure.
According to the lawsuit, on Feb. 21, 2012, Long was eyeing vehicles at Daylight’s auto lot when a sales lady took him to look at a truck.
“While looking over the truck, plaintiff was struck by a vehicle being displayed by defendant on a rotating platform/lift,” the suit states.
The suit further alleges Daylight negligently failed to warn him of the danger and correct the dangerous condition created by the rotating vehicle.
Long is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages.
Beaumont attorney Adam Terrell of the Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell law firm represents him.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
