From "A Conversation with Jeffrey Krivis":
What I try to do in an emotional case with gigantic commercial overtones is elevate the victim from just a folder, just a name, just a number in an insurance directory or a corporate file, and humanize the person. It is a big challenge when you try to interact the emotional side with the commercial side because they have to at some point come together with some sense of urgency.
