Proof & Argument of Damages
Workhorse’s most essential teaching & learning experience
Our session, Proof & Argument of Damages, is considered by many to be the Workhorse Seminar’s most essential teaching & learning experience year after year.
It is the session where trial advocates discover the necessary ingredients needed to maximize settlements and verdicts.
We learn such lessons such as the critical nature of educating each juror on the importance of understanding that each “element” of damages is separate & distinct.
We learn the power of consortium claims (as opposed to how most lawyers devalue these claims).
We will learn tactics, techniques & strategies of making economic damage proof a “driver” of noneconomic losses.
This session can and should change the ways in which we handle the damage components of discovery and trial!
