LOGAN – A couple is suing D&M Used Auto Sales for injuries they suffered from a car accident.
Dallas Earl Marcum was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On May 30, John Paul Workman was driving a vehicle and Tiffany Ann Workman was a passenger in the vehicle, according to a complaint filed Dec. 21 in Logan Circuit Court.
The Workmans claim they were exiting the Fountain Place Mall onto U.S. 119 via Norman Morgan Boulevard in Logan County when Marcum, who was operating a vehicle owned by D&M, ran a red light and struck their vehicle.
As a result of the collision, the Workmans sustained serious bodily injuries, according to the suit.
The Workmans claim they did not commit any comparative negligence, nor did they contribute to their own injuries.
Marcum was using the vehicle with permission of D&M, according to the suit.
The Workmans claim Marcum had a duty to refrain from driving a vehicle at a speed greater than was reasonable and prudent.
Marcum also had an obligation to stop at all red stop lights and to yield the right of way to any vehicles entering the intersection under a green light, according to the suit.
The Workmans suffered medical expenses; pain and suffering; physical limitations; diminished capacity to enjoy life; annoyance and inconvenience; future pain and suffering; other economic loss; and loss of consortium.
The Workmans are seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. They are being represented by Robert D. Cline Jr., Robert A. Campbell and Letisha R. Bika of Farmer, Cline & Campbell.
