Woman Files Truck Crash Lawsuit Claiming Aggravated Wrist Injury

A woman who says that she was struck by a truck pulling a flatbed trailer is suing the city of Beaumont for personal injury. Juanita Burdge says the truck accident aggravated an already existing injury she had to her left wrist and also caused her to experience shoulder pain, neck pain, and mental trauma.

Burdge is seeking an unspecified judgment for her medical expenses, physical disfigurement, and resulting impairment. Following the truck collision on November 7, 2007, she says she experienced limited motion in her wrist, in addition to pain.

Burdge says the truck accident happened as she and the truck, which was in the lane next to her, attempted to turn left at an intersection. According to Burdge, because the truck driver did not keep the truck steady in its lane, the large vehicle struck the motor vehicle she was in.
