When a verdict is found for the plaintiff in an action for the recovery of money,
or for the defendant when a setoff for the recovery of money is established beyond
the amount of the plaintiff's claim as established, the jury shall also assess the
amount of the recovery; they may also, under the direction of the court, assess the
amount of the recovery when the court gives judgment for a party on the pleadings.
