PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida jury says that a Disney Cruise Line worker deserves $4 million from the company based on her claim that she got inadequate medical care from ship doctors after she was hit by a car during a port of call.

The Brevard County jury earlier this month ordered the cruise line to pay Maria Ana Reis Martins the judgment.

It included $2 million for lost earnings, $1 million for pain and suffering and $1 million for punishment.

Her attorney says it's the first time that Disney Cruise Line has a lost a personal injury case involving a ship worker in a jury trial.
