TEXARKANA – An East Texas woman has initiated litigation after she allegedly sustained injuries while riding a Sea-Doo more than a year ago, Texarkana federal records show.
Hailey Halbert’s lawsuit, which was filed on Dec. 10, implicates BRP in the May 29, 2017 incident involving a 2008 Sea-Doo Model RXT.
The original petition says that Halbert and her male driver were operating the personal watercraft in a safe manner.
According to the plaintiff, the Sea-Doo began to accelerate and she “slid off the back of the passenger seat and fell directly behind (the Sea-Doo) in close proximity to the waterjet thrust on the jet drive propulsion system.”
Halbert reportedly suffered “mutilating” injuries to parts of her body, including, but not limited to, her genital area, colon, and internal organs.
“These injuries have resulted in excruciating pain, intense mental anguish and embarrassment, significant physical impairment and disfigurement,” the suit says.
Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by Dana G. Kirk of the Kirk Law Firm, PLLC in Houston.
