HOUSTON – A chauffeur has pursued legal action in response to suffering an alleged head injury while making a trip for his employer more than a year ago.
Harris County resident James Craft filed a lawsuit against A Ambassador Limousine & Transportation, Inc. on Jan. 24 in the Harris County 11th District Court, stating that he hit his head operating a large coach bus filled with student volleyball players for the company on Sept. 21, 2015.
The bus purportedly “hit a spot on the road” that caused the vehicle to “bounce up.” Craft’s head was thrusted into the top of the bus, the suit says.
The defendant sent Craft to a Neighbors Emergency Center where he was diagnosed with a concussion. Court papers show that the plaintiff informed the business of his symptoms, as well as sought treatment from another physician.
Per Craft, he was told that he required an MRI to which the respondent refused to cover.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by attorney Farrah Martinez of Houston.
