Our nation’s roadways are equipped with a variety of traffic signs that motorists are lawfully obliged to follow. It isn’t unusual, however, for many of these signs to go ignored, leading to tragic consequences. Unfortunately, for a woman in Galveston, Texas, another driver’s alleged negligence led to a damaging accident.
Ignoring the Signs
The woman filed a lawsuit against a male driver with the Galveston County District Court on July 28th after she suffered serious injuries in an accident where the man allegedly failed to yield the right-of-way. According to the lawsuit, the claimant was driving west on the 1400 block of Church Street when she was struck by the man’s vehicle after he failed to control his speed and yield for the woman’s car.
The lawsuit also states the woman suffered:
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Physical disfigurement
- Physical impairment
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
Additionally, the claim is holding the driver responsible for:
- Causing the accident
- Failing to keep a lookout for traffic
- Driving inattentively
- Failing to maintain proper distance
- Failing to yield
With the lawsuit, the woman is seeking damages in the amount of jurisdictional limits, pre-judgment amounts allowed by the law and at the legal rate, plus costs and any additional amounts the court deems fit.
