How does the jury decide who is at fault? What percentages of fault each party is responsible for? And most importantly, what damages are to be awarded to the plaintiff? Prior to the jury starting deliberations, the judge will charge or give instructions to the jury. Once such charge might address the issue of damages and could include the following directive:

Damages - Fear Resulting from an Increased Risk of Future Medical Treatment and Disability.  The plaintiff may recover damages for fear of an increased risk of future medical treatment and disability proximately caused by the defendant's negligence.  The fear must be rational in that the consequence feared has a reasonable basis in the evidence.  Fear of a completely fictitious or imagined consequence, having no reasonable basis, is not a recoverable element.
