Here's what I see:

1. Woman feels pain after accident and goes to GWU hospital where they say they can't see anything wrong with her

2. Rather than get a second medical opinion, she goes to a personal injury lawyer

3. The lawyer sends her to the doctor he works with

4. Doctor performs thousands of dollars of treatments that produce no results

Covering thousands of dollars of medical procedures that only the lawyer's doctor deemed necessary and that a very reputable hospital and her treating physician did not deem necessary, seems sufficiently generous.

Actually, I'd be more inclined to award her money for the pain but nothing for medical bills from the lawyer's doctor. That said, are you going to award money to every person who claims pain after an injury even if there is no supporting medical evidence?
