Common human experience teaches us that we all have something to share - something that we might know more about because of our experience. The hairdresser knows far more about hair than the realtor. The realtor knows more about real estate than the truck driver. Doctors know far more about medicine than a stockbroker. And lawyers experienced in estate litigation have seen repeat patterns in situations that are not usually encountered in everyday life.
California law provides that damages can be recovered for the loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society and moral support. Explaining these losses to a jury is often accomplished by the telling of stories. Storytelling is the most efficient way for delivering truths and transmitting knowledge. We listened to stories when we were young, and we listen to them when we are old. They move us. They place us at the scene of important events, and they teach us.
