Rebecca Bruce, 41, thought she was going to die when she was hit by a double-decker bus outside her home.
The driver, Paulo Ferreira, only got a six month ban from driving.
She claims the driver continued to drive for four seconds whilst she was being dragged along, until he slammed on the brakes.
Prosecutor Johan Rainburd said one eyewitness claimed Ferreira only realised the crash had taken place when “he tried to accelerate”.
Describing the crash, she said: “I literally thought I was going to die. Passengers and witnesses were screaming.
“My head was squashed in between my legs and the police had to pull me out like a baby from a buggy. I got dragged along with my wheel under his wheel.
“Since then, I’m really cautious and frightened. I don’t go out in my car, which means I can’t pick my son up, I’ve put on two stone, I haven’t seen any of my friends.”
