Summary
When it comes to malpractice awards, there will always be those who call them exorbitant and others who call them just. But how exactly do juries calculate a figure for damages? How do they determine what the quality of life-or even life itself-is worth in dollars and cents? This ABC News program introduces viewers to a jury that, after finding a doctor to be negligent, had to then answer questions that most would find unanswerable. Their insights are illuminating.
