Our client was visiting New York from California when her cab was involved in a minor accident with a second cab. After her cab had been stopped in the street, a bus then struck her vehicle from the rear. Our client was treated in the emergency room and then released. She returned to California, where she continued to undergo treatment and eventually was diagnosed with spinal injury, which was impinging on her spinal cord. Insurance companies offered a total of $35,000 during trial. The jury verdict was sustained on appeal, and the $35,000 was paid, with interest, to the client.
