A man from Orange County, Texas has filed suit against Allstate Insurance Company, claiming he did not receive damages to which he was entitled after an accident that left him with personal injuries.
According to the suit he filed on January 26 in Texas’ Jefferson County District Court, Walter Smith was driving south on February 15, 2007 when the incident took place. He had to slow down for traffic in front of him that had also slowed.
Smith claims that Walter Shilo Jr. failed to control his speed and collided with the vehicle in front of him, causing it to rear-end Smith’s car.
Smith claims that the collision caused him to suffer injuries to his back, right leg, and body. He also claims that he experienced extreme physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, lost enjoyment of life, lost earning capacity, and medical expenses.
When the accident occurred, Smith had insurance with Allstate.
Smith alleges negligence on the part of Shilo for failure to apply his brakes, failure to maintain a proper lookout, failure to drive safely, failure to maintain control of his vehicle, failure to take evasive action, and failure to control his speed.
Smith seeks unspecified damages.
