Case Details: A mother of four was picking one of her children up at school and had another child in the back seat, when she was rear-ended by a bus, suffering from a disc injury and neck injury.
Damages: Does the size of a bus matter in an incident like this? Generally, yes, but the size, although important, does not overpower the Delta-V, or ‘change in velocity’ when an accident has occurred. Surgeries cost a lot of money and increase pain and suffering, not to mention they provide evidence that the injury was legitimate. Thus, this typically increases the value of the case.
