A Tennessee man is suing Washington defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth for causing a car accident that left him needing a hip replacement, asking for $7.5 million in compensatory damages alone.

Attorney Jon Perry filed the lawsuit for Corey Edmonson on Friday in Williamson County Circuit Court. Perry said Monday they also are asking for punitive damages but will let jury decide what the Nashville man deserves.

Haynesworth was indicted in March by a grand jury on charges of reckless driving and having an expired registration for an incident Dec. 13. Haynesworth was driving a black Ferrari when he tried to pass Edmonson's car, which crashed into the concrete median on Interstate 65.

Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins on Feb. 27.
