FAYETTEVILLE – A Fayette County woman is suing another
driver and his insurance carrier for allegedly injuring her in a chain-reaction
Ladonna J. Benger filed a lawsuit May 19 in Fayette Circuit
Court against Dr. Nabil Guirguis and Farmers & Mechanics Fire &
Casualty Insurance Inc., alleging personal injury liability and negligence.
According to the complaint, on April 19, 2015, Benger was
stopped at a traffic light in her Buick Rendezvous while traveling on U.S.
Route 19 in Fayetteville. The suit says Guirguis lost control of his Ford

a result of the accident, Benger says she lost wages, incurred medical expenses,
and endured pain and suffering.
Benger seeks a jury trial and compensatory damages. She is
represented by attorney Jennifer Dempsey Meeteer of Farmer, Cline &
Campbell PLLC in Beckley.
Judge John W. Hatcher Jr. is assigned to the case.
