Victim of three-car accident sues driver alleging negligence

By Carol Ostrow | Jul 9, 2015

A League City resident filed a lawsuit against a Harris County man for alleged vehicular negligence in a 2013 rear-end collision in Friendswood, purportedly causing personal injury and property damage to the plaintiff.

Amy Rader sued Giovanni Martinez of Pearland in Galveston County District Court on July 6, claiming liability in July 2013.  

According to the suit, Rader was operating her motor vehicle northbound on or about July 9, 2013, in the right lane of traffic in the 1500 block of Winding Way Drive in Friendswood. The suit states that Martinez, driving a 2007 Mercedes CLK550, allegedly failed to control his speed and crashed into a 2007 Lincoln Town Car, which in turn collided with Rader’s auto.

Documents filed indicate that a police report stated Martinez’ failure to control speed was a contributing factor in the crash.

Claiming negligence and damages, the plaintiff blames the defendant for failing to keep a proper lookout, apply his brakes, drive safely, control his vehicle, take evasive action to avoid impact, and follow traffic regulations.

Alleging physical and mental injuries, impairment and medical expenses, the plaintiff seeks compensation for damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees, expenses, and costs. 

The plaintiff is self-represented.
