How about this, a two stage civil trial.  The first stage is
the assessment of fault, same process as it is now.  If the jury finds
for the Pl., a second phase begins.  Each side is allowed to
present the jury with examples in common law of similar situations
and the damage award, then each side presents a settlement that they think
is 'fair'.  The jury can only choose one of the two settlements.  If this
sounds familiar it is because I have shamelessly stolen the concept from
the baseball arbitration process, don't know who they stole it from.
