Last year, a lifeguard ran over a woman in Daytona Beach Shores and is now being sued by her and her family. The plaintiff was sunbathing when the lifeguard ran over her in a pickup truck. She has facial paralysis on the left side of her face as a result. Both orbital bones were broken and her eyes were black for several months. Furthermore, she has hearing loss and is going to need hearing aids or surgery.
The suit seeks more than $15,000 in damages. It seeks damages for the injuries, the losses of consortium and emotional distress by her husband and children. Additionally, it seeks to prevent county employees from driving and making U-turns in pedestrian areas.
