SAN DIEGO – A San Diego resident claims he was injured in an accident with a federal employee.
Joseph Sulit Hermoso filed a complaint on Dec. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against United States of America and Gregory Allen Harrison alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 6, 2014, he was driving along Old Highway 80 with intent to make a left-hand turn. The suit states Harrison was traveling at great speed and braked hard upon noticing plaintiff's vehicle attempting to turn, which caused defendants' vehicle to rotate and collide into the rear of plaintiff's car. As a result, the plaintiff alleges he has suffered pain, anxiety, mental anguish, lost earnings and physical injury.
The plaintiff holds United States of America and Harrison responsible because Harrison allegedly drove at an unsafe speed.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, general and compensatory damages in an amount of no more than $575,000, costs of lawsuit and other relief that the court deems proper. He is represented by Frank V. Crudo and Joseph C. Crudo of Crudo Law in San Diego.
