Calculating and proving personal injury damages is a critical part of litigation - and one of the most difficult. As a civil litigator, perhaps you have struggled with the complex issues relating to liability - and with arriving at and defending an actual number that is reasonable.  Examine damages from both sides of the coin to provide tips that will help both defense and plaintiff attorneys more easily determine damages - starting with their very next case. Learn how experienced attorneys calculate damages for everything from lost profits to defamation - and avoid costly mistakes that hurt your client. You'll walk away feeling confident you're prepared to quantify damages precisely and provide the sophisticated legal representation your client expects.
