A South Florida woman has won a lawsuit against the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for thousands of dollars after she was injured by a deputy in 2014.

The incident happened in a Winn-Dixie parking lot. Dash-cam video shows a PBSO deputy ramming into Jeraline Robinson's car.

The deputy was responding to a call and didn't have the vehicle's lights and siren on when speeding through the parking lot.

"You can't really accept responsibility unless you show your accountability, and that's really what this case was all about," said attorney Stuart Kaplan.

Robinson will receive more than $62,000 to cover medical expenses.
