An elderly plaintiff became totally disabled after a horrific apartment accident. The plaintiff is over 84 and the only item at issue would be the alleged reckless negligence of the defendant.
If the plaintiff ultimately dies before the case goes to trial, would this fact reduce the award a jury would make ? Could there still be a trial with the Estate as plaintiff ? thanks very much.
