This survey presents a collection of reported damage awards since the year 1950 for heart injury not resulting in death. Assuming proof of injury and liability, the statement of the case is limited to the amount of damages and elements of the injury relied upon to justify the court's decision. The survey is preceded by a brief treatment of recent trends in appellate court reviews of heart injury damage awards and a short summary of pre-existing heart condition problems.
