12 Feb Calculating Work-Life Expectancy Damages
Economists can prove to be indispensable in the calculation of future lost income damages for someone in a disability case, and we will bring them in if necessary. Part of the valuation of future lost damages is a plaintiff’s work-life expectancy.
Unfortunately, if a person has a medical condition reduces his or her work-life expectancy, future lost income may be affected by that. This unfortunate part of the calculation cruelly ironic since it is because of that medical condition that they lost their job in the first place.
Ultimately, these are decisions that will be made by a jury and would have to hold up in court, but the court will take into consideration a number of factors including the ability to secure another job, when determining damages.
