A Beaumont resident is suing a driver on allegations of vehicular negligence in a 2013 two-car automobile collision.
Regina Rosales filed a complaint against Kendrick Bailey, also of Beaumont, in Jefferson County District Court on July 24, claiming liability in December 2013 when the defendant’s vehicle allegedly collided with the plaintiff while entering a roadway.
According to the suit, the plaintiff was traveling southbound on Major Drive in Beaumont on or about Dec. 2, 2013, when the defendant, who was stopped in a private drive, allegedly entered the road when it was unsafe to do so and struck the plaintiff’s vehicle.
The complaint states that Bailey failed to keep a proper lookout for other vehicles in the roadway, neglected to stop, yield and grant the right of way in the intersection in accordance with a posted stop sign, and entered the road unsafely.
Rosales complains of neck, back and general body injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish, impairment, disfigurement, lost wages and loss of earning capacity, and medical bills.
The plaintiff seeks between $100,000 and $200,000 in compensation for damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees, expenses, and costs. The plaintiff is represented by Brett Thomas of Roebuck & Thomas of Beaumont.
