Calculating economic damages is pretty clear cut. Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity is a mathematical equation. The figure arrived at is hard to dispute.
Non-economic damages are much more subjective and require a completely different approach in order to ensure fair compensation.
Dave Kritzman of Beck & Eldergill recently shared his experiences in successfully mediating a wrongful death case. The case involved a sixty year old gentleman who was not a high wage earner. Because of this, Kritzman and his team focused on the non-economic damages, which they believed had the greatest potential for recovery.
According to Kritzman, because non-economic damages are subjective, their perceived value is much more dependent on the emotional reactions of the mediators rather than rational, analytical calculations, and this is where an experienced attorney can very effectively bring the power of a well produced video documentary into play.
He also discussed the importance of projecting confidence in a case, and how he uses video to accomplish this.
