MARTINBURG - A Maryland man had filed a suit against a Berkeley County woman for $500,000 after he was injured in a car accident.
John Edward Broy filed the suit Nov. 14 in Berkeley Circuit Court against Sharon L. Stambaugh.
According to the suit, Broy was driving on Maple Avenue in Martinsburg on Dec. 1, 2005, when he claims Stambaugh ran a red light and collided with him.
The accident caused Broy to suffer serious, painful and permanent injury to his head, neck, back and limbs. He required medical treatment and other expenses.
Broy claims he lost employment, and he says his wage and earning capacity was impaired.
Broy, through attorney David E. Furrer, seeks $500,000, plus interest, in compensatory and punitive damages.
The case has been assigned to Judge Christopher Wilkes.
