Nobody wants to hand money to someone who does not “deserve” it, even when the money is coming from an insurance company. But, our civil justice system is a “you break it” — “you bought it” system. The defense cannot make your injuries or pain magically go away, so our Founding Fathers agreed that money must serve as payment for pain and injury. This means that the amount of money must be equivalent to the harm caused. Most Jurors are caring and compassionate people who understand this concept.
