By Lhalie Castillo | Mar 22, 2018

PRINCETON — A woman is suing a local transit company, alleging it was negligent and she suffered injuries while she was a passenger on the bus.

Linda F. Gore filed a complaint Feb. 22 in Mercer Circuit Court against Bluefield Area Transit, alleging the defendant failed to operate one its buses in a safe manner.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 13, 2016, Gore was a passenger aboard a BAT bus traveling to Grants Supermarket in Princeton. The suit says Gore suffered serious and permanent injuries when the bus hit a speed bump while traveling at a high rate of speed. 

Gore says her injuries included a traumatic compression fracture, acute cervical sprain and a lumbar spine strain that resulted in great, mental anguish and medical expenses of approximately $5,775.96. The plaintiff alleges BAT failed to operate its bus at a safe speed. 

Gore seeks trial by jury, damages to be determined at trial, plus interest, attorney fees, court costs and all further relief the court deems proper and just. She is represented by attorney Harold B. Wolfe III of Princeton.
