GRETNA – State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company is suing an uninsured driver who allegedly caused a serious auto accident with one of its customers who then tried to flee the scene and responding law enforcement officers.
State Farm, as subrogee of Paul Simmons Jr., filed suit against Nancy M. Davis in the 24th Judicial District Court on May 1.
State Farm claims that on April 17, 2012 its customer Simmons was driving his 1988 Chevrolet Caprice at the intersection of Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero when he was broadsided by Davis who was driving a 1996 Dodge Dakota. State Farm asserts that a passenger in the Simmons' vehicle was injured and needed medical treatment after the accident.
The defendant is accused of operating her vehicle in a careless and reckless manner, failing to maintain proper control of her vehicle, failing to see what should have been seen and failing to maintain a proper lookout.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for an injury settlement.
State Farm is represented by attorney Charles S. Green Jr. of New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division H Judge Glenn B. Ansardi.
Case no. 737-981.
