In the summer of 2010, a Smith County woman’s car was hit by a Southwestern Energy Corp company vehicle. Two minor children were passengers in the car at the time of the incident. The Energy Corp vehicle changed lanes and hit the rear of the woman’s vehicle. The plaintiff claims that the defendant failed to control his speed, properly apply his brakes and properly keep a lookout. All of these factors led to him hitting the woman and two children.
The plaintiff is seeking damages for physical pain, mental anguish, lost earnings, physical impairment, medical expenses, lost earning capacity, interest and court costs for both her and the children. Currently, it is awaiting trial. The plaintiff’s lawyer requested a jury trial.
