The Family of Seven-Year-Old Lexi Hanson Files Injury Lawsuit Against Hit-and-Run Driver, Brian Quartuccio, of St. Charles
July 17, 2019. The family of Lexi Hanson has filed a lawsuit seeking the recovery of damages for the personal injuries seven-year-old Lexi suffered as a result of being struck by Brian Quartuccio in a hit-and-run incident in St. Charles, Illinois on May 12, 2019. The lawsuit, which was filed against Mr. Quartuccio on July 17, 2019 in the Circuit Court of Kane County, seeks damages for the severe injuries Lexi suffered while riding her bicycle on Illinois Avenue in St. Charles Township on Mother’s Day. The lawsuit alleges that Mr. Quartuccio acted both negligently and recklessly when he operated his Dodge Ram truck at a high rate of speed, striking Lexi on her bike and then fleeing from the scene. According to eyewitnesses, Mr. Quartuccio was seen travelling so fast as he fled from the scene that he nearly lost control of his vehicle upon turning onto a side street. As a result of his actions, Mr. Quartuccio has been criminally charged with leaving the scene of an accident, driving while his license was revoked, driving while his license was revoked causing injury, and failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident, according to the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Lexi sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision and was airlifted to Lutheran General Hospital, where she was hospitalized. The lawsuit brought on behalf of Lexi seeks damages for Lexi’s injuries and medical bills.
Lexi and her parents are represented by Naperville attorney, John J. Malm and his firm, The Law Offices of John J. Malm & Associates.
