We further find that the total amount of compensatory damages the plaintiff, James Denton is entitled to recover, without considering the fault percentages, is $ 16,095.900 itemized as follows:

$ 2,917,000

 

 

The pain and suffering experienced and reasonably certain to be experienced in the future:

 

 

$ 6,000,000

 

 

The disability experienced and reasonably certain to be experienced in the future:

 

 

$ 6,000,000

We further find that the total amount of damages that the Plaintiff’s Spouse, Theresa Denton, is entitled to recover, without considering the fault percentages, is $ 3,060,000, itemized as follows:

 

 

The reasonable value of the services of her husband which she has been deprived and the present cash value of the services of her husband of which she is reasonably certain to be deprived of in the future
