$2.6 Million Award Upheld To Kansas Tourist

KSAL StaffAugust 19, 2014

A judge upheld a $2.6 million judgment awarded to a Kansas tourist whose skull was fractured when she was run over by a truck driven by a lifeguard.

Volusia County had appealed part of the judgment handed down by a jury in favor of Erin Joynt, who was injured while lying on the beach in 2011. The judge ruled Monday after the county had appealed a $600,000 portion of the judgment granted for compensation for future medical bills and earning capacity.

Joynt was also awarded $500,000 for past suffering and $1.5 million for future suffering. Deputy County Attorney Larry Smith says officials may still decide to seek a reduction in other amounts.

Joynt’s attorney John Phillips says he will seek a speedy resolution.
