Jaffa Ann Winick was rear-ended three separate times in her early 20s. She had started out as a teacher, and loved to swim and ski.
As a result of the accidents, she developed chronic pain, injury to her wrist, stress and low mood, and thoracic outlet syndrome.
She struggled through her practicum and doubted it would ever be possible to work full-time.
At the end of the proceedings, Winick was awarded in excess of $500,000.
