Car crash injury claim

Unlikely sunbathing accident

A French woman who was holidaying in the USA is making a compensation claim for car crash injuries that she suffered after being run over by a lifeguard's beach buggy while sunbathing on a San Diego beach.

It is understood that the woman's personal injury claim seeks damages for the various car crash injuries she suffered in the accident, including to her legs, pelvic area and ankles.

In an email from her new home in Hawaii, the 24-year-old French national said, "The pain in my hip and my scars are there to remind me all the time, I sometimes have bad dreams related to the accident, and every time I hear a story like mine but worse, I was lucky compared to what could've happened. I am pretty affected by it."

The woman's personal injury solicitor said that as well as seeking damages for his client's car crash injuries he hoped that the city council would change its lifeguard safety practices.

While talking to press, the personal injury solicitor said, "The city of Coronado needs to start a review of its policies on beach patrols and implement safety measures that are going to prevent this from ever happening again."

It is not the first time that a holidaymaker has suffered car crash injuries while sunbathing in San Diego. In 2002 a woman suffered cuts and bruises after being run over by a lifeguard's buggy while soaking up sun on the popular beach.
