MOUNDSVILLE — A woman is suing the Ohio County Commission and county employee Ian McNally, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries, leading to a traffic collision.
Belinda Parsons filed a complaint on June 16 in Marshall Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging carelessness in driving by McNally and carelessness by the Ohio County Commission in entrusting its vehicle to McNally.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 2, 2014, McNally negligently operated a vehicle on Route 2 in Moundsville and collided with her vehicle. As a direct and proximate result of the collision, she has suffered physical injuries, property damage, aggravation, annoyance, inconvenience, emotional distress and medical expenses, the suit says. The plaintiff holds the Ohio County Commission and McNally responsible because defendant McNally allegedly violated traffic and safety laws of the State of West Virginia, failed to maintain proper control of the vehicle, and failed to take necessary measures to avoid the accident.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for damages, compensation for her injuries, attorney fees, costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other relief as the court deems just and fair. She is represented by Herman D. Lantz of Lantz Law Offices in Moundsville.
