The damage portion of a personal injury claim is the heart of the tort case and determines whether or not the claim is worth pursuing. The attorney must be able to determine accurately the level of damages the injured plaintiff can expect to recover for his or her injuries.

The checklist format of this book provides a quick and thorough reference for an attorney to use when evaluating a client's personal injury case. The attorney can ensure that he or she has met the obligation owed to the client to identify and calculate properly those damages recoverable and make sure that the damages are pleaded properly and that the evidence necessary to prove the claim is gathered. This checklist allows the attorney to determine the appropriate basis for the damage claim and what evidence and testimony will be needed.
