On July 15, a customer filed suit against a Louisiana car dealership, claiming that the injuries he suffered as a passenger were caused by a salesman who crashed the car into a curb. In the lawsuit, which was filed in the 24th Judicial District Court, the man seeks an undisclosed amount of compensation for damages that include lost earning capacity, lost wages, medical costs, pain and suffering, and mental suffering and anguish.
According to the report, the incident occurred in Gretna as a Ray Brandt Nissan car salesman drove the plaintiff in one of the vehicles. The plaintiff said that the salesman caused him to suffer serious, incapacitating injuries after the car went over a curb. In his suit, he is accusing the defendant of failing to properly and timely apply the brakes, failing to maintain control, careless operation, failing to maintain a proper lookout and inattention.
