HUNTINGTON -- A man is suing a Milton couple after his son was involved in an accident while riding his bicycle.

On May 5, 2008, Jakob Hill was riding his bicycle near his home in Milton when the minor daughter of Raymond and Ellen Adkins was operating a motor scooter and collided with Hill, according to a complaint filed Nov. 17 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Jakob Hill's father, Adam Hill, claims the Adkinses owned the scooter their daughter was riding and that they were negligent and careless in allowing their daughter to operate the scooter.

Mr. Hill claims the Adkinses daughter recklessly failed to maintain a proper lookout for others, disregarded the safety of others and failed to keep the scooter under proper control.

Jakob Hill suffered serious, permanent bodily injuries that have caused him extreme physical and mental pain and suffering according to the suit.

Mr. Hill is suing for compensatory damages for his son's injuries. Matthew J. Woelfel of Woelfel & Woelfel is representing him.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
