Why do some juries award high damages and some juries award low damages for cases with similar facts? How do you increase the settlement value of your case? How do you bring a case back to a reasonable range? This fast paced on-demand webinar answers questions about the central issue in all civil cases: what's it worth and how do judges and juries decide the value of a case. An experienced consultant with backgrounds in communication, social psychology and law will share years of experience, research, and training in this on-demand webinar on how jurors decide economic and noneconomic damages in civil cases. He will discuss how jurors negotiate the subjective elements and navigate the objective evidence to determine the losses claimed in various types of lawsuits. This on-demand webinar will also teach key persuasion strategies to influence jurors' assessment of damages testimony and ultimate valuation of damages.
