BEAUMONT – A lawsuit brought over uninsured motorist benefits recently settled.

The suit, brought by Sydney Glenn Boyd against American Access Casualty, was called up for trial earlier this month and settled halfway through the proceeding, according to a courthouse official.

According to the lawsuit, on March 12, 2017, Boyd was walking on a “wide open” stretch of Crystal Beach when a minor driving a golf cart struck him from behind.

Evidence shows the minor had been drinking alcohol. The minor was arrested afterward.

Boyd was hospitalized for two nights because of the incident, court records show.  

Boyd made a claim for uninsured motorist benefits and was denied, prompting the lawsuit.

In its answer, AAC asserted that the golf cart was not an “uninsured motor vehicle” under the policy.

Boyd was represented by the Reaud Morgan Quinn law firm in Beaumont.

AAC was represented by the Anderson & Truitt law firm in Houston.

Judge Justin Sanderson, 60th District Court, presided over the case.

Case No. B-202039
