NEW ORLEANS – Several
Orleans Parish residents have filed a suit alleging injuries after a
motor vehicle accident on East Hermes Street with a federal employee.
Pugh, individually and on behalf of her minor daughter Mia Salomon,
John Pugh and Patricia Pugh filed a complaint on March 6 in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against
U.S. Postal Service and Joe Wyatt
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on April
9, 2014, defendant Wyatt was operating a USPS delivery truck when he
struck the front bumper of the vehicle owned and operated by plaintiff
Kynisha Pugh, in which plaintiffs Mia Salomon, John Pugh and Patricia
Pugh were passengers. The sudden and impact caused severe bodily
injuries to each plaintiff, they allege. The plaintiffs hold the U.S.
Postal Service and Wyatt responsible because defendant Wyatt allegedly
failed to observe existing traffic conditions and failed to maintain
proper control of the vehicle.
The plaintiffs request a trial by
jury and seek judgment against all defendants in an amount to adequately
compensate them plus interest and costs of these proceedings. They are
represented by Ryan E. Beasley Sr. of Law Office of Ryan E. Beasley Sr.
LLC in New Orleans.
