HOUSTON – A California resident is seeking more than $1 million in damages for injuries he suffered when a Total Safety U.S. truck driver allegedly caused an automobile collision nearly two years ago.
Joseph Moza filed the suit April 1 in Harris County District Court, also naming Rubin Cain Alford as a defendant.
According to the lawsuit, on June 22, 2017, Moza was traveling westbound on Highway 302 when a tractor-trailer driven by Alford failed to fully stop at a stop sign and yield, striking Moza’s Nissan on the right-hand driver side.
The impact “violently jolted” Moza’s vehicle, the suit alleges.
Alford was in the course and scope of his employment with Total Safety at the time of the incident, according to the suit.
Moza is suing for his alleged mental anguish, lost wages, disfigurement, impairment and medical expenses.
Houston attorney Sam Maida Jr. represents him.
