MOUNDSVILLE — A Moundsville couple is suing a beverage truck owner and driver, alleging their negligence caused a vehicle crash that injured the husband.
Steven Litman and Betty Litman filed a complaint April 13 in Marshall Circuit Court against Wine and Beverage Merchants of West Virginia Inc. and Christopher Wayne Tennant, alleging Wine and Beverage negligently entrusted its beer truck to Tennant, a careless driver.
According to the complaint, on May 3, 2016, Steven Litman was lawfully driving his 1995 Buick on Third Street near its intersection with Washington Avenue in Moundsville. The suit says Litman had the right of way when Tennant caused the beer truck owned by Wine and Beverage to strike of Litman's vehicle.
Litman alleges he suffered injuries to his neck, shoulders, arm, back, psyche and different various parts of his body. The sit says Betty Litman suffered loss of comofort and consortium. The plaintiffs allege Tennant failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to yield right of way and failed to adhere to a traffic control device.
The Litmans seek trial by jury, damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court, attorney fees, court costs and all other just and appropriate relief. They are represented by attorney David A. Jividen of Jividen Law Offices PLLC in Wheeling.
