After interviewing Ms. Baker, you learned the following: Ms. Baker, a resident of Connecticut, was on a road trip to visit the world’s largest ball of twine in Cawker City, Kansas. When she was driving in Kansas, her car was hit from behind by Ms. Smith, a Kansas resident. Unfortunately, Ms. Baker’s car was totaled, she suffered injuries, emotional distress, and lost time from work. Her damages exceeded $75,000. The police determined the accident was wholly faulty of Ms. Smith.
