HUNTINGTON — A woman is suing two motorists and their employer, seeking damages for injuries that she alleges were sustained when her car was struck at a traffic intersection.
Rhonda Carver filed a complaint against John Doe and Michael Roberts and ABC, Inc. in Cabell Circuit Court, alleging that the defendants breached their duty of care to avoid any accidents while operating a vehicle in an intersection. According to the lawsuit, Carver was driving southbound on Main Street in Guyandolle, Huntington, on Jan. 12, 2017 when defendants Roberts and John Doe attempted to either cross the intersection or execute a turn from the east at a stop light, striking Carver's vehicle.
Roberts and John Doe were employees of defendant ABC, Inc. and were acting within the scope of their employment during the accident. As a result of their alleged negligence, the plaintiff claims she sustained physical injuries, mental pain, loss of enjoyment of life and medical expenses. The suit states that the defendants failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to yield to oncoming traffic and drove in unreasonable speed under the circumstances.
Carver requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a sum sufficient to fully compensate her for injuries, plus costs, interest and attorney fees. She is represented by Scott G. Stapleton of Stapleton Law Offices in Huntington.
