WILLIAMSON — A man who was injured in a Mingo County accident is suing RJS & Sons after the company's driver was cited for possession and for having no proof of insurance at the time of the accident.
According to a filing in Mingo Circuit Court, Erik Harper alleged negligence in his complaint against RJS & Sons Inc.
Harper was injured in July 2017 when the defendant crossed the highway's center line on Route 80 in Mingo County. Despite Harper attempting to avoid the crash by pulling to the edge of the roadway, the defendant's vehicle struck the driver's side of Harper's car at a "head-on angle," according to the suit. The defendant was cited for causing the accident and was found to have no proof of insurance and to be in possession without a prescription.
Harper seeks compensation for his injuries and damages as well as attorneys' fees and other litigation costs.
