What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Woman sues Volusia County after hit by county beach patrol truck

Posted on August 10th, 2011 No Comments

A 33-year old woman recently filed suit against Volusia County to receive compensation for the injuries she suffered when a county worker hit her with a Volusia County Beach Patrol pickup truck.  In the accident, the woman suffered broken ribs, facial fractures, and hearing loss.

The accident occurred last month when the woman was lying in the sand on the beach and was hit in the head by the front wheel of the truck.  A 21-year old part-time lifeguard was reported to be driving the vehicle.

The lawsuit is seeking damages from the county for negligent traffic management to cover the woman’s medical expenses of up to $100,000.  In addition, the lawsuit accuses the county of not properly training their lifeguards.
