FAYETTEVILLE — A West Virginia resident is suing a car leasing company and a motorist, citing alleged negligence.
Barbara E. Broyles filed a complaint in Fayette Circuit Court against Trisal Leasing Company Inc. and John Dale Dunbar, alleging that they failed to comply with the appropriate standard of care in operating a motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, Broyles alleges that on Dec. 27, 2016, while she was a passenger in her vehicle operated by William Hal Canterbury with her permission and traveling along Town Center Road in Fayetteville, Dunbar operated the vehicle owned by Trisal Leasing Company in a negligent manner so as to cross from the assigned lane into the lane occupied by Broyles, striking her vehicle. As a result of the accident, she suffered damages including medical costs, great physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish and ability to enjoy life.
The plaintiff holds Trisal Leasing Company Inc. and John Dale Dunbar responsible because they allegedly failed to prevent the negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failed to slow down or take any precautionary measures and failed to timely apply brakes.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for compensatory and punitive damages, plus costs incurred. She is represented by Anthony J. Sparacino of Sparacino Law Office in Beckley, West Virginia.
