MOUNDSVILLE — A disabled adult from Moundsville is suing health care services providers, citing alleged negligence; willful, wanton and reckless conduct; and negligent entrustment.

Laurel L. Johnson filed a complaint in Marshall County Circuit Court against Rebecca L. Goudy, Bryan M. Goudy and Mulberry Street Management Services et. al., alleging that they negligently directly and/or proximately contributed to her injuries.

According to the complaint, Johnson alleges that on Feb. 15, 2018, she was a front seat passenger of Rebecca L. Goudy when their vehicle was struck on the passenger side door by another vehicle. Johnson sustained severe injuries, was admitted in an ICU several times until April 11, 2018, and needed to undergo rehabilitation services until May 22, 2018. The plaintiff holds Rebecca L. Goudy, Bryan M. Goudy and Mulberry Street Management Services et. al., which provide transportation services to disabled people, responsible because Bryan Goudy and Mulberry Street Management services allegedly were negligent in permitting Rebecca Goudy to operate a vehicle when they knew or should have known that her license had been suspended by the State of West Virginia. Moreover, Rebecca violated the traffic and safety laws of the State of West Virginia and the United States.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages and punitive damages in an amount deemed fair, just and equitable by the court. She is represented by Christopher M. Turak and Michelle Marinacci of Gold, Khourey & Turak LC in Moundsville, WV.
