Justice-related beliefs affect damage award assessments

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

People differ in the extent to which they believe in ultimate justice—a sense that individuals ultimately find justice. People with a high belief in ultimate justice bestow more meaning on the lives of injury sufferers than do people with a low belief in ultimate justice. Participants read vignettes regarding personal injuries, completed a survey that measured beliefs in ultimate justice, and assessed hedonic damage awards to the injury sufferers. Results showed those with a high belief in ultimate justice awarded less in damages for loss of enjoyment of life than those with a low belief in ultimate justice.
