Damages

Categories:
1hr 9min | 2008
In the United States, when someone dies as a result of the negligence or liability of another person-medical malpractice, a highway accident, murder-a wrongful death lawsuit, seeking monetary damages for the loss of financial or emotional support, may be filed by surviving family members. Over $100 billion in such personal injury compensation, or "damages," is paid each year.

DAMAGES goes inside the offices of Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder, one of the biggest American law firms specializing in such lawsuits. The film observes the lawyers as they meet with the families of victims, examine documents, gauge the strengths and weaknesses of each case, try to put a value on a life ended prematurely, and decide on a legal strategy.
