Karissa Gunnoe Workman, as mother, next friend of infant Zachary Gunnoe, and individually vs. Donnie Bias, individually, and as father and next friend of Aaron W. Bias, an infant; Westfield Insurance Co.
PA- Harry M. Hatfield; J- William S. Thompson
* Personal injury suit stems from a single vehicle accident last August on W.Va. 85 near Quinland. Zach Gunnoe was a guest passenger in a pickup truck operated by Aaron Bias, who Ms. Workman complains carelessly and negligently failed to maintain control when running off the roadway and striking a concrete building. The accident caused serious and permanent bodily injury to Zach, says his mother. She claims expenditure of great sums of money for medical care and expects future costs resulting from Zach's injuries, plus his loss of income and earning capacity. Suit seeks jury awards for compensatory, special and general damages, court costs, pre-and-post-judgment interest, and such other relief deemed proper. A second count requests Declaratory Relief relative to Westfield Insurance coverage affording $50,000 per person/$ 100,000 per occurrence involving and uninsured motorist, with $15,000 medical payments.
