HAMLIN -- Tiffany Dyer is asking a Lincoln County jury to award her $250,000 in compensatory damages, plus such other relief adjudged just and proper, for serious injuries she says resulted from a November 2010 vehicle accident.
Lawyer Vic Navy filed her suit Sept. 20, charging Pete E. Burgess with reckless, careless and negligent driving of his 2004 Dodge Stratus. Dyer was a passenger in the southbound car on WV Route 10 near Ranger, according to complaint, when the vehicle went out of control, left the right side of the road, ran into an embankment and flipped onto the passenger side.
The accident caused Dyer, the complaint asserts, to suffer "serious, painful and permanent personal injuries, great physical pain and mental anguish, severe and substantial emotional distress, loss of the capacity for the enjoyment of life;" and, among other things, require medical treatment and expenses, lose ability to earn income.
The case is on Judge Jay M. Hoke's docket for trial in September in Lincoln Circuit Court.
