Hartford Attorney Files Lawsuit on Behalf of CT Hit and Run Victim

A seven-year old girl was seriously injured when a car hit her and then drove away.  The driver, 18-year-old Leonita Scanlon, was driving down Dowd Avenue when she struck the little girl.  Directly after the accident the teen driver fled the scene.

Scanlon turned herself in a month later, after a warrant for her arrest was issued.  Aside from police action the driver and the owner of the car involved are being sued for damages stemming from the crash.  A Hartford attorney has filed the lawsuit on behalf of the victims’ mother.

The suit alleges that the driver was speeding, failed to grant right-of-way, failed to exercise due care, failed to give warning, failed to watch for pedestrians, failed to avoid the collision and failed to brake in time.

The car/pedestrian accident left the young girl with multiple serious injuries, some of which may cause permanent damage and possible disability.  She was treated at anarea hospital for injuries including a fractured pelvis, broken ribs, broken arms and multiple skull fractures.

The Hartford law firm is seeking damages in excess of $15,000.  Damages will cover medical bills and ongoing medical treatments, pain and suffering.


The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren hope that the injured child is recovering quickly and fully from her injuries.
