Product Description

MCLE's Damages, Interest, and Attorney Fees in Massachusetts Litigation is an essential resource for civil litigators seeking to assess the value of their cases and develop effective strategies for litigating damages. The earliest chapters of the book offer a general overview of the law of damages in Massachusetts, guidance on practice and procedure, and a look at settlement options. The book then explores damages issues in major areas of civil litigation in Massachusetts, such as personal injury actions and Chapter 93A cases. The concluding chapters, on interest and attorney fees, provide clear and practical guidance on these important but occasionally overlooked aspects of a plaintiff's recovery.
