And now new dedays of the contentious trial of a woman run over by a life guard truck while sunbathing. We want to warn you the images are graphic. Mara schiavocampo has more. Reporter: It's a disturbing case. She was on vacation in Florida when the accident happened. And the judge has determined that the county is responsible. Now the question is how much should the victim be compensated. It's the case of a dream vacation turn into the a nightmare. One of the law enforcement officers in the beach truck just ran over a lady. Please hurry. Reporter: These 911 calls describe the scene. She was lying on the beach and he ran right over top of her. You don't know the extent of her injuries by looking at her, do you? No, I don't. The tire went over the top of her body. Reporter: Erin join from Kansas was sunbathing three years ago when she was run over by a beach patrol truck driven by a 21-year-old life guard. The county said he didn't see her. They will hear opening arguments today. Her life will be changed forever. Reporter: And they showed the photos of the day at the beach. The photos of the injuries shortly after. Black eye. Bruises. Reporter: Her attorney says she was treated for a fractured skull, memory loss and a collapsed lung and has lingering paralysis on her face. But the attorney for the defense said she is living a Normal life, even going to Disney world five months after the accident. Her recovery was sufficient at that point in time to enjoy a vacation at Disney world. Reporter: This is not the first case of its kind, at least 13 people have been injured or killed by vehicles on the beach. Now one woman is seeking damages for fun in the sun. In court documents, her lawyer says it's more than $15,000. And the lawyer for the county can't comment on the case. It's expected to last all week, and she is expected to testify. At this point, it's about damages. Only $15,000. And her family has been compensated because of the suffering they endured. Now it's a question of whether she is going to be compensated. Thank you.
