Laura Sims, an employee of Bubble Wash at 4703 Fort Riley Blvd. at the time of the accident is seeking recovery of medical costs from Samantha Beye.

She is suing for damages in excess of $75,000, claiming past, present and future disability, loss of time and earnings, pain, discomfort and medical expenses.
