This woman has contacted her lawyer, who was able to obtain a psychological expertise proving that the woman’s depression was a direct result of the accident.
She received an additional amount of $46,000. Moreover, the court found her unfit to resume work due to her chronic pain and granted her an income replacement benefit for two additional years.
