|Lawsuit filed in bus accident|
The parents of a passenger on a Concordia school bus which hit a garbage truck in Vidalia on Oct. 8, 2008, have filed a lawsuit.
Named as defendants in the suit are the driver of the Durham School Services bus. James H. Cockerham, State Farm Insurance and XYZ Insurance Company.
The plaintiffs are Bradley and Teresa Price, parents of the minor, Lessley Farmer, who the suit says suffered "progressive, serious and permanent injuries" in the accident. The family is represented by Vidalia attorney Brent Gore.
The suit alleges that the bus Cockerham was driving failed to stop at a traffic light on Carter Street (Hwy. 84) in front of Wal-Mart and hit a garbage truck which "had come to a complete stop at the red light..." The suit says the truck "had the right of way" and that Cockerham "failed to slow down or stop at the traffic light and at that time struck the garbage truck from behind."
The driver, the suit says, was negligent because he failed to manage and control his vehicle, failed to "keep a proper lookout," failed to see what "he should have seen" and to "act reasonably," and failed to bring his vehicle to a stop or alter his course.
The suit alleges that the defendants "have been arbitrary and capricious in their refusal to pay in full plaintiff's claims for personal damages despite amicable demand, and, therefore" should pay "interest, penalties and attorney fees" as well as "the costs for all expert witnesses of any description" including "economic and medical experts."
