As a result of the crash, Gillis says she suffered, serious and permanent injuries, great physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience and aggravation of an existing condition. 

The plaintiff alleges Scarberry failed to adequately maintain and operate a motor vehicle so as not to cause harm, and operated the Jeep in a negligent manner.

Gillis seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus court costs, pre-judgment interest and all other relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by attorrney Frank P. Marsalisi of Marsalisi Law in St. Petersburg.
