9. Verbal demands were made against Defendant – Philippine Kuneho Bus

Lines at their branch office located along Governor Pack Road, Baguio

City for the refund of all Plaintiff’s expenses he incurred as a result of the

vehicular incident but such demands were only landed to a deaf hears;

10. In view of the unwarranted display of bad intent of the Defendant – Driver

mental anguish and undue irritation and vexation whereby moral damages

which although incapable of pecuniary estimation could be assessed in

the amount at no less than TWENTY THOUSAND (Php20,000.00)

PESOS, must be awarded as joint and solidary liability of the Defendants;

13. The wanton disregard of the safety of the public and traffic rules and

liability of the Defendants and example for the good and deter other

person from the commission of the acts complained of herein;

Plaintiff for actual damages and unrealized income, Defendants

deliberately refused to compensate the Plaintiff, thus, compelling the

Plaintiff to hire the services of a counsel whose fees are agreed upon in

the amount of TWENTY THOUSAND (Php20,000.00) PESOS plus ONE

THOUSAND (Php1,000.00) PESOS for every appearance in court;
