(CMR) The estate of deceased Jamaican physician Valry Anetta Jones-Leslie Breakenridge have commenced a lawsuit against Roy Clivey Tamasa and his insurance company Saxon Insurance Solutions (Cayman) Ltd. for her death.
The allegations are that Tamasa caused her death by negligence when his taxi van struck her on July 17, 2017 at the Owen Roberts International Airport while she was on the pedestrian crosswalk heading to the car rental facility at the airport.
They are claiming for damages under the Torts law for the death as well loss to the estate under the Estates Proceedings Law for loss of expectation and consequential loss.
Last week we reported that Tamasa (70) changed his plea to guilty before his criminal trial began.

She graduated from medical school at University of West Indies, Mona in 1973 and obtained a doctorate in 1986 in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at UWI, Mona.
