KINGWOOD – A Tucker County man seeks damages for his injuries after his vehicle was allegedly hit by a tractor-trailer.
Brandon James Conrad filed a lawsuit Jan. 18 in Preston Circuit Court against Shaffer Timber Co. and Michael Phillips over claims that defendant Phillips' negligent acts caused him to suffer injuries.
James asserts that on Jan. 15, 2014, defendant Phillips, operating a 1995 Western Star tractor-trailer owned by Shaffer Timber, was traveling down Route 219 near Silver Lake and negligently caused the tractor-trailer to travel in the lane on which James was driving. This action allegedly caused a collision between Phillips’ tractor-trailer and James’ 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier. James claims that the collision caused him severe injuries, such as permanent damages to his body, and mental anguish. James has allegedly incurred medical bills, surgeries and hospital stays due to the injuries. James also claims that he suffered a loss of income and ability to work.
He is suing for damages, pre- and post-judgment interests, attorney fees and court costs, and any other relief deemed proper by the court. He is represented by Pat A. Nichols of Parsons. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Lawrance S. Miller Jr.
