$18,000 verdict awarded to a women who was rear ended by her live in boyfriend.

She was at a traffic light and his car was behind her. He bent over to pick up a piece of lint from the floor and his foot slid off the brake and he rolled into her. She had already suffered prior injuries from a previous rear end collision. She was thus fragile and easily re-injured. The Insurance company claimed it was a tap with no visible car damage. Thus she could not have been hurt. But the the jury did not buy it.
