THE LATEST WORD

... what's this?

Damages

'Damages' is an interesting area of law, focussing as it does on the final (and most lucrative ;-) stage of trials. Most of the real 'work' in damages law deals with the logical nitty-gritty of summing things up over the various types of damages involved. Punitive damages, while getting most of the attention, are rarely awarded and not in the high values you might see in US news.
