Your Stamford car accident case has been presented to the jury and they are about to begin deciding or deliberating your case in order to reach a verdict. How are the jurors to take all of the evidence that has been presented to them and then decide how much money you are entitled to receive? The trial judge will give jury charges or instructions to the jurors so they will know how to take Connecticut law and apply it to the facts that have been proven to them. One issue that the jury needs to decide is damages. The judge might instruct or charge the jury on that issue by stating:
Damages - General. The rule of damages is as follows. Insofar as money can do it, the plaintiff is to receive fair, just and reasonable compensation for all injuries and losses, past and future, which are proximately caused by the defendant's proven negligence. Under this rule, the purpose of an award of damages is not to punish or penalize the defendant for (his/her) negligence, but to compensate the plaintiff for (his/her) resulting injuries and losses. You must attempt to put the plaintiff in the same position, as far as money can do it, that (he/she) would have been in had the defendant not been negligent.
